Shot with Crimson by Nicola Upson


Bookseller Review by Valerie: 

Nicola Upson is on superb form in Shot With Crimson, her 11th crime novel featuring the real life Scottish crime writer and playwright Josephine Tey as her detective. Set in 1940,  Josephine makes a risky crossing  over the Atlantic to be in Hollywood with her partner who is working on the iconic Hitchcock film Rebecca then being shot in Hollywood.  Josephine is caught up in a crime which had its origins in an English country house during the First World War and has links to the story of Rebecca. The real characters and true events surrounding the making of the film interwoven with the layered  fictional crime story make for a dramatic and sophisticated homage to golden age crime fiction.

September, 1939, and the worries of war follow Josephine Tey to Hollywood, where a different sort of battle is raging on the set of Hitchcock’s Rebecca. Then a shocking act of violence reawakens the shadows of the past, with consequences on both sides of the Atlantic, and Josephine and DCI Archie Penrose find themselves on a trail leading back to the house that inspired a young Daphne du Maurier – a trail that echoes Rebecca’s timeless themes of obsession, jealousy and murder.
