I read this book for the Vintage Mystery Reading Challeng: Scattergories.
The Category is: #14. Scene of the Crime: a book with the location of the crime in the title (The Body in the Library, Murder at the Vicarage, etc.)
I have never read anything by Josephine Tey. I liked this story because it had twists and turns. Inspector Alan Grant is called to investigate a murder of a man that was killed while standing in line to get into a theater to see a play. Through difficult detective work, he gets a suspect and chases him to Scotland - I found it funny that the author kept referring to the citizen in Scotland as Scotch! Scotch is something you drink...people from Scotland are Scots!
But he doesn't feel the suspect is the murderer. He is correct. That's all I am going to say. I don't want to spoil the ending.
