Book 31 – The Man in The Queue by Josephine Tey

Quite a period piece, this one – an early detective story (1929) by Josephine Tey.  Not a bad read, nice historical detail.

But don’t read it with 2015 sensibilities, you’ll only get annoyed, particularly with the persistent cultural and racial stereotyping. I’m struggling to give Tey a pass on this one, as it is so much worse than anything written by her contemporaries.
