The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey
Although Josephine Tey wrote during the Golden Age of Detective Fiction (1920s-1940s), her work is less familiar to me than say Agatha Christie’s or Ngaio Marsh’s. And that’s a shame, because Josephine Tey‘s The Franchise Affair is full of wonderful writing. Today’s quote for instance:
“The trouble with you, dear, is that you think an angel of the Lord as a creature with wings, whereas he is probably a scruffy little man with a bowler hat.”From The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey
I will definitely be reading more from Tey.
