Notes:When movie star Christine Clay is found dead, presumed drowned, it's considered a tragedy. But when a coat button is discovered twisted up in her hair, it's time for Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard. His suspects are several — the young man who tried to steal her car, her husband who lied about his whereabouts, her song-writer who showed up just after the body was found and her brother who figures so strangely in her will. Grant sets about to solve the case with some help from a British Nancy Drew.

Review - A Shilling for Candles

Like all of Tey's books, this one is well-written. She doesn't fall into the formula trap that many mystery writers do, and although this may not be her best, it was a quick, fun read.
