“As befits a tribute to the golden age of Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers et. al., there are plot twists, plot turns and red herrings aplenty.”
Time Out London


Real-life British mystery writer Josephine Tey returns as a fictional sleuth in Angel with Two Faces—the second atmospheric mystery in Nicola Upson’s wonderfully inventive series. In this riveting sequel to Expert in Murder, Tey, in league with intrepid policeman Detective Inspector Archie Penrose, is called upon to help unravel a dark and perplexing crime at a Cornwall country house and backstage at a local theater. Fans of P.D. James and of British noir in general will adore Angel with Two Faces—a traditional mystery with a twist—and this writer whom Ms. James herself calls, “A new and assured talent.”

    Angel With Two Faces

    Probably one of the best books I've read in more than 20 years. What a joy to discover a new author like Nicola Upson. She not only is able to develop her characters beautifully from book to book but she builds suspense extremely well. I have already purchased her next book in paperback because unfortunately it's not available in e-reader format...A shame because this author is outstanding. I now have another writer in the genre of Elizabeth George, Martha Grimes, Deborah Crombie and the like who not only has a love of language but knows how to deliver a superlative work of suspense. I don't believe in review that give away a plot. If you want that then read Nicolas first book, An Expert in Murder and go on with the rest of the series. Like me you won't be disappointed, only overwhelmed by the discovery of a terrific new author. Kudos to Nicola Upson - this is a great read from beginning to end?
