    DescriptionIt was rumoured that Hollywood stars would go to any lengths for the privilege of being photographed by the good-looking, brilliantly talented and ultra-fashionable portrait photographer Leslie Searle. But what was this gifted creature doing in such an English village backwater as Salcott St. Mary? And why - and how - did he disappear? If a crime had been committed, was it murder...fraud...or simply some macabre practical joke?

    Author Information
    Josephine Tey is one of the best-known and best-loved of all crime writers. She began to write full-time after the successful publication of her first novel, The Man in the Queue (1929), which introduced Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard. In 1937 she returned to crime writing with A Shilling for Candles, but it wasn't until after the Second World War that the majority of her crime novels were published. Josephine Tey died in 1952, leaving her entire estate to the National Trust.
    Review quote
    "Worth reading for its ingenious denouement." Times Literary Supplement "Josephine Tey enjoys a category to herself, as a virtuoso in the spurious ... The nature of the deception on this occasion is too good to give away." New Statesman "Nobody can beat Miss Tey at characterisation or elegance of style: this novel's a beauty." San Francisco Chronicle "Suspense is achieved by unexpected twists and extremely competent story-telling ... credible and convincing." Spectator
