Product Details


Praise for The Body on the Train
“This well-told tale is enriched with vignettes of daily life at a time in England…Readers must be on their toes to catch the subtle hints Brody skillfully drops.”
—Publishers Weekly

“The threads are all pulled neatly together by the end.”
Historical Novels Society

Praise for Sorry for the Dead:

“Magnificent…Upson couples an engrossing plot with a nuanced and poignant look at human passions and frailties. Fans of golden-age mysteries will be more than satisfied.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Achingly perceptive about forbidden relationships and the unreasoning hatred they can provoke, then as now.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Upson’s eighth Josephine Tey mystery intriguingly combines murder with stories of love in the face of hateful bias. A notable addition to this fine series.”

“A challenging murder mystery…and a strong sense of place combine to make this a fascinating read.”
Library Journal

“The skilled writing evokes a deep sense of place; the complex character development intrigues.”
Historical Novels Society

“Nuanced [and] sophisticated…it explores thorny social themes with acute insight and polished prose, while ensnaring readers with a gripping plot that keeps them guessing until the last page…A striking novel and a great read.”
Thriller Books Journal
“[A] superior mystery…About the insanity of war, the muddle and panic of middle age and the corrosive effects of loneliness. The end comes with an avalanche of shocking revelations.”
—The Times

“Intriguing…Nicola Upson has done something rather clever…She pays homage to the ‘Golden Age’ traditions of the genre and is particularly perceptive about the role of women in that era.”
Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine

Praise for Nine Lessons:
Shortlisted for CWA Best Historical 2018
“Superlative…Upson successfully incorporates moving and complex interpersonal conflicts involving her main characters into an intricate, credible whodunit story line.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Fans of historical British mysteries, such as Jacqueline Winspear’s ‘Maisie Dobbs’ series, will delight in this old-fashioned whodunit starring characters with depth and heart.”
Library Journal

“Accomplished…A skillful blend of fact and fiction with compelling plot lines and vivid evocation of 1937 England.”
