Waterstones Says

A cosy Cornish Christmas turns into a frantic hunt for a murderer in the ninth instalment in Upson’s series featuring the fictionalised Golden Age crime writer Josephine Tey.

Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2021

Longlisted for the CWA Sapere Books Historical Dagger 2021.

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.

“A Christmas/ winter treat”

This is the ninth book in the Josephine Tey series and I have to admit being new to the work of Nicola Upson. A Christmas crime story is something of an English tradition and if you love an Agatha Christie style... More
