Publisher's Summary

A snowy Christmas gathering on an island off the Cornish coast goes murderously wrong in this festive golden age mystery.

December 1938, and storm clouds hover once again over Europe. Josephine Tey and Archie Penrose gather with friends for a Cornish Christmas, but two strange and brutal deaths on St Michael's Mount - and the unexpected arrival of a world-famous film star, in need of sanctuary - interrupt the festivities. Cut off by the sea and a relentless blizzard, the hunt for a murderer begins.

Pivoting on a real moment in history, the ninth novel in the Josephine Tey series draws on all the much-loved conventions of the golden age Christmas mystery, whilst giving them a thrilling contemporary twist.

As always just brilliant!

Sometimes In a series, you worry that the Author will run out of ideas and that the books will become monotonous...well no fear here with Nicola Upson!
Filled with multiple murders and tender emotions, this book is a rollercoaster journey as always bought to life by the amazing narration on Sandra Duncan.
Bravo 👏

Another good one

Quite short, and that is no bad thing. The story is very well organised and we find all our favorite characters involved in a rather complex (as usual) plot. The setting on St Michael's Mount was very well described with an excellent sense of place and drama. All in all a very good addition to the series.

The Dead of Winter

I loved this easy going book and the narration made it more enjoyable.
Having just visited St Michaels Mount, it was great listening to the descriptions of this incredible place.
Will now read the rest of the Josephine Tey series.

A great murder mystery

This is another great murder mystery from Nicola Upson and a must listen or read.
I love all the books in this series, they are all so well written and I love trying to figure out who the murderer is.
I also like that they have Josephine Tey as the main character, I have also read all of her books and would recommend them as well as this series of books.

Another great Josephine Tey mystery

As always, really well written, intriguing plot, especially as it contains real places and characters. The reader was good to listen to. Definitely recommended.
