A stranger enters the inner sanctum of the Ashby family posing as Patrick Ashby, the heir to the family's sizeable fortune. The stranger, Brat Farrar, has been carefully coached on Patrick's mannerisms, appearance and every significant detail of Patrick's early life, up to his 13th year when he disappeared and was thought to have drowned himself. It seems as if Brat is going to pull off this most incredible deception until old secrets emerge that threaten to jeopardise the imposter's plan and his very life.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chartreuse | 2/6/2014

    " It's a classic. Searched for it for years, and finally found a battered copy at a car boot sale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 2/5/2014

    " A classic tale of a young man posing as another who finds he's in for more danger than he counted on thanks to the masquerade. Like all of Tey's work, this is grounded deeply in character, filled with nuance, yet suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/2/2014

    " Another great Tey, although I guessed much of what was going to happen. I knew Brat would turn out to be a distant relation and I even saw the twist of what really happened to Patrick coming. I wonder if it would have made a better mystery if the reader didn't know that Brat wasn't Patrick, or if it works better to be inside the head of the imposter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 1/26/2014

    " Ooh- rural England, a twin who vanished years ago returns to claim his title...only he's an imposter! And he's the one most interested in unraveling what happened years ago. Plus horses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 1/22/2014

    " although the final outcome is just too easy to see in the beginning, the whole story is interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colin | 1/18/2014

    " A wonderful book, full of love from an author who died too young. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Orr | 1/14/2014

    " Tey is a unique mystery writer in that her characters and story telling are certainly more interesting than her actual mysteries. Here, you know the key to the puzzle just a few chapters in, but you're still shocked and horrified with the reveal in the final 10 pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz Scheier | 12/27/2013

    " My favorite mystery, ever. Followed closely by MISS PYM DISPOSES and THE FRANCHISE AFFAIR. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sc | 12/2/2013

    " It was OK - fairly obvious "whodunnit" from early on, and a bit implausible, but not bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 meeners | 11/1/2013

    " worth reading for the characterizations! (vague spoilers in comments.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisabeth | 8/31/2013

    " This is one of those mysteries that I love, where there's good writing and a snappy secret. Brits are great at that! Give me this book on a rainy day and I will be satisfied! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 7/25/2013

    " Josephine Tey is an interesting mystery writer. A good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 7/6/2013

    " I loved this book and try to re-read it every couple of years. It is great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 4/20/2013

    " My aunt gave this to me because she knows I love Agatha Christie and she thought it was similar. I disagree. It was a mystery but not very mysterious..... It was good enough and an interesting plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandalyn | 5/26/2012

    " I enjoyed this book, but it was a bit predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olean Public Library | 12/10/2011

    " The heir of the aristocratic Ashby family has disappeared. One day, out of the blue, the boy reappears. Is this the missing heir or an imposter? Full of suspense and tension. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lara | 10/17/2011

    " Entertaining plot, and charming characters. I do think this would have been better as an epic - The story (apart from the horse show) seemed rushed, telescopic. I wanted the different relationships explored more deeply. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 7/28/2011

    " Charming British mystery. My favourite Tey novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/21/2011

    " How delightful! This is an english mystery with deep characters, in the manner of Agatha Christie's The Hollow, where the mystery is besides the point. I'd love to find other work by her to try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 7/11/2011

    " Very clever book. Seemed a strange convention to give the reader so much of the information so early on, but, if course, there were other mysteries that had not been revealed. In fact, the first two thirds of the book was like one long red herring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 reed | 6/7/2011

    " Awesome. A little bit like The Talented Mr. Ripley in that you really empathize with the character who's doing the wrong things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 4/5/2011

    " I read this book over and over when I was in my teens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 3/31/2011

    " Wonderful plot! Would make a great movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 5/27/2008

    " A little gnome at an S. F. mystery bookstore turned me on to Josephine Tey. She's a British novelist with a flair with a perfect light touch. I gobbled this one up. "
