Exhausted and disillusioned with the world of theater in May 1935, Josephine Tey has traveled to Cornwall to spend the summer with her friends, the Motleys, at their run-down but beautiful country estate. Ready to begin work on her second mystery novel, Tey finds much to inspire her in the landscape and its legends. Meanwhile, the Motleys have become involved in an amateur production at the nearby Minack Theater.

Detective Inspector Archie Penrose has returned to his roots in Cornwall to attend the funeral of a family friend, a young estate worker who died in a tragic riding accident. Penrose has a few questions about the circumstances surrounding the fatal occurrence. And when the Minack Theater proves to be the stage for a real-life tragedy, Penrose and Tey together must investigate an audacious murder and confront an evil suggesting that there are darker things than death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Packed with lust and illicit passion.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “The portrayal of Tey is both sympathetic and perceptive…Upson is chillingly effective at showing how good intentions may lead to evil consequences…A fine addition to a promising series.”

    Spectator (London)

  • “Carefully plotted, full of historical information, local color and meticulous psychological analysis.”

    Literary Review (UK)

  • “Within a relatively short period, Nicola Upson has established herself as one of the most inventive and unusual of crime writers…It’s easy to feel that Tey herself would be delighted with these fictitious imaginings of her life.”

    Barry Forshaw, author of The Rough Guide to Crime Fiction 

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by V.c. Linde | 2/17/2014

    " My favourite of the series. Sensitive but still unflinching. Same characters well supported by new faces. Beautiful descriptions of Cornwall as well. The twists were a little transparent but that didn't take anything away from it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kirsty Darbyshire | 2/9/2014

    " I really liked this. I enjoyed An Expert in Murder but it took me a long time to get to this. Cornish setting, with real outdoor theatre, was fabulous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Colleen | 2/1/2014

    " A mystery set in a small English village where Josephine (the writer of Daughter of Time) has come at the invitation of her friends. She arrives after a funeral of a local golden boy and inadvertantly gets caught up in the intruge and secrets that have strained all the ties that bind the once closekint community together. Warning: not for the squeamish as one of the major storylines is, well, a bit on the creepy side, but a well written book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sally | 1/7/2014

    " This series, featuring mystery author Josephine Tey as the main character, is surprisingly engaging. "
