A Shilling for Candles

A Shilling for Candles - Robert Barnard, Josephine Tey Whilst better than the first Grant novel, if only for the fact it is solved -by- Grant rather than by a deus ex machina, this is still merely an interesting mystery, falling far short of a great, or even good, one. The parts of this novel that shine are the characters which are themselves richly drawn and quite enjoyable to read.
