I ve not been a fan of every Tey I have ever read sometimes a reread can disappoint but not in this case Brat Farrar s temptation into a life of assumed identity or is it intrigue thrills every step of the way Every detail of this book works perfectly meshes together We take every careful step with Brat the scene where view spoiler Brat has a conversation with his drunk supposed twin Simon hide spoiler is a quite wonderful example of taut suspense.If you don t read any other works by Tey, please [...]

so this isnt a mystery novel in the traditional sense, but its got a very compelling pacing to it that makes the suspense parts both immediate and british leisurely like a brisk stroll on the grounds where we mustnt go too quickly or geoffrey will tire my love of law and order the one on television has ruined me for mystery novels or maybe just mystery novels written before 1950 because i always know my whodunits too soon i have this affliction where i can retain very little of what i hear, but [...]

You know those reviews where somebody is reviewing a deeply loved old book, and criticizing everything on it, accusing it of all types of political incorrectness Either skip this or hold on, because this is going to be one of those reviews and that is surprising me I did not know I had it in me.This was my second read I read it maybe 10 years ago, and I recalled it as being charming and with an interesting plot which included a favorite trope impersonation I picked up and read the first pages a [...]

A mystery involving an imposter and a possible crime set in and around a horse stud in the south of England, sometime after World War II, this is a novel which kept my interest from beginning to end It s an intriguing work On the one hand, the way in which the narrative develops and the resolution of the mystery are extremely predictable I m not particularly skilled at solving literary crime before the protagonist charged with that task, but here I worked out what had happened and what was going [...]

I was confused whether I should read this one or the Daughter of Time, but I chose the former since it s different from what I ve read before And wow, This probably one of the best book I ve read I s not a typical classical mystery where a murder is committed in countryside and a detective is summoned to solve it Instead, it revolves around Brat Farrar, an orphan who spent few years in America and returned to England Few days after his return he s approached by Alec Loading, an actor who mistake [...]

After so many re reads, Brat Farrar by Josephine Tey is still one of the best classical British mystery novels of all time I like the plots and how the characters were written, I like the strong sense of British ness that seeps through the story, although the typical classism everyone in the story tends to judge people by their family backgrounds, their breeds and their social statuses, etc is pretty difficult to swallow, still the strong points of the story easily manage to overwhelm the weakne [...]

A strongly delivered story of sibling rivalry Patrick Ashby was considered a suicide when a young boy, years later he returns to the family seat of Latchetts as Brat Farrar Wonderful air of time and place and an engaging mystery Had an inkling early on as to how the mystery surrounding Brat Farrar might unfold but it in no way detracted from the appeal of the story overall An enduring mystery that manages to hold up over time, well worth a look at.

Somehow, I never read this before Somehow I never had a copy until not too long ago, and somehow when I reread all my Teys at the beginning of the year I couldn t put my hands on my copy It s a trade paperback, which lives in a different place from the ordinary paperbacks Stupid segregation Also, there is the sort of vague feeling that I was saving this with Brat Farrar still unread, there was still a Tey novel out there that would be new to me But then last week my friend Jemidar pointed out th [...]

A friend recommended this mystery book to me when hearing of my interest in English authors Josephine Tey is better known for her book The Daughter of Time which is next on my reading list If Bret Farrar is any indication of this author s talent, then I am in for a treat Bret Farrar is a intense look at the English upper classes and their love for well bred horses The wealthy family in the book has a history of traditions, class snobbery and tragic loss It is a crime novel based on the Tichborne [...]

Is it a scam, if not even the scammer is sure it is actually a scam A good fast paced mystery with just enough deception to keep me guessing as to who was the victim and who was actually the villain.

Oh, this book I felt compelled to up my rating to 5 stars after this re read.The basic plot is one of my favorites the return of the heir, long presumed dead We the readers know fairly early on that Brat is not the missing Patrick The tension is generated by the many hurdles Brat has to clear to maintain his impersonation of Patrick At every point along the way there s the chance that the whole house of cards will come tumbling down Tey has such a smooth and warm style All the characters are so [...]

Josephine Tey, along with Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, is my favorite mystery author Sadly, she wasn t at all prolific She only wrote eight mystery novels before her death in 1952 What I find remarkable about them is that each really is so memorable and so different, yet each offers than just some intricate puzzle piece, and producing some jaw dropping twist is usually beyond the point.Tey s probably best known for The Daughter of Time, and I d probably name that one as my favorite Tey t [...]

A novel that s very loosely based on the case of the Tichborne Claimant Back in 2009 I read another novel based on the same case, Robin Maugham s The Link 1969 It s not really worth comparing the two because they offer completely different treatments of a similar tantalizing subject How do you know someone whom you haven t seen in many years is actually the person they claim to be rather than a well trained impostor, even if that person is purportedly a family member There s a direct treatment [...]

Josephine Tey s best known for her mysteries featuring the suave Scotland Yard Inspector Alan Grant, particularly The Daughter of Time however, Brat Farrar has to be her best book The novel, which deals with mistaken identity and how appearances can be deceiving on many levels builds such suspense that you can t put the book down That s such a clich , I know, but, in the case of Brat Farrar, it s actually true.By chance, British born orphan Brat Farrar gets the chance to pose as the long lost he [...]

So many wonderful books would be hidden from our knowledge without the enthusiastic recommendation of a dear friend or relative A novel that has remained on my personal Top Ten list for over twenty years came from just that source Years ago, Margaret Turner, in her eighties and legally blind, passed on to me a tattered anthology of mystery novels by Josephine Tey Brat Farrar was my favorite First published in 1949 and set in rural England, it is a mystery without the standard corpse on the heart [...]

The book is listed as a mystery Well, there is a mystery but we don t really get much about until we are well into the novel and then it s dropped until near the end A secondary mystery regards the identity of Brat himself and that is resolved in a very artificial way The novel is well written, the characters and setting well drawn, and if one ignores the flimsy mystery the book is a mildly enjoyable read.

A fine old classic mystery Plenty of suspense and mystery, and interesting enough characters and places The ending was fine, ok, but lacked a certain amount of punch that would have done a little justice to all the ways you could imagine Tey could have gone with this Still, a satisfying read.

Note this is not an Inspector Grant novel Readers of Dick Francis might well enjoy this novel.Josephine Tey is the pseudonym for Elizabeth Mackintosh 1896 1952 Both a playwright under the pseudonym Gordon Daviot and novelist and due to a fierce predilection to keeping her life private, little is known about this author She guarded her life jealously, avoided the press, side stepped photographers, and never did any interviews Biographers for the most part are therefore fairly well pissed off abou [...]

Awesome book In my rediscovery of Josephine Tey, this is the best yet, perhaps her best ever in my opinion It s a mystery, but not your traditional puzzle piece mystery The mystery is intrinsic to the story, but the book is so much The point of view is unusual, from inside the head of the imposter who isn t even a bad guy I want to give it a 5 My only hesitation is that I don t think Tey completely explained how the protagonist solved the murder What did he see from up on the hill If any of my [...]

In this novel of stolen identity, Brat Farrar is enlisted to pose as Patrick Ashby, scion of a wealthy English family, who was an apparent suicide eight years early The book traces the tempting of Farrar, and his struggles with his new identity Coincidentally, I had recently read The Scapegoat, by Daphne du Maurier, in which the protagonist is thrust, against his wishes, into a similar situation where he must act in the family role of his double The books have many similarities du Maurier s char [...]
