Scottish author and playwright Josephine Tey (1896-1952) holds an especially honored place among British mystery writers, and this collection of five BBC Radio programs is a wonderful introduction to her work. As part of its high production values and immediately recognizable style and sound, BBC Radio pairs Tey's work with some of the best known and most talented character actors in England. Joan Sims and Julia Foster solve the case in MISS PYM DISPOSES, Edward Petherbridge finds the tension in THE FRANCHISE AFFAIR, and Peter Gilmore takes a humorous and gentle turn as the brilliant Inspector Grant investigates the alleged crimes of King Richard III from his hospital bed in THE DAUGHTER OF TIME, which is celebrated as one of the greatest crime novels ever. Timeless classics all. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
