I loved it! Very satisfying mystery. ( )

Oh, Josephine Tey... Why you gotta be so dark? You write such interesting people, and then there are the psychos. I mean, I like mysteries, but this is too sad and evil. ( )

A slow but entertaining read, although I'm not sure I really follow Brat's realization near the end. ( )

The key elements of the plot seemed transparent to me early on, so I enjoyed this as a relaxing read, full of detailed descriptions of a horse breeding and racing household in post-WWII England. ( )

A lovely little interlude from heavy reading, this early mystery was reminiscent of one of my favorite Daphne du Maurier novels, The Scapegoat. Patrick Ashby is meant to have committed suicide when he was thirteen years old. A body washed up downstream from his home, but unrecognizable, was assumed to be his and buried. His twin, Simon, will turn twenty-one soon and inherit the family estate at Lachetts in Patrick’s stead.

Enter a stranger who looks too much like Simon to be ignored and claiming to be Patrick, not a suicide, just a run away. The stranger, who has gone by the name of Brat Farrar, has led a life of adventure and has come home just in time to assume his inheritance. Of course, the intrigue begins as we watch this man find his place in the family, as we wonder if he might truly be Patrick, and if not, who is he and how has he come to have the face of an Ashby?

Part of the mystery was pretty easy to solve for me, but no matter, the book was still fun. I loved the character development and was more interested in how Brat would solve the emotional dilemma of revealing the truth and not losing the love of the family he has found.

I seem to enjoy the older mysteries more than the newer ones. There is a quaintness in the settings and the way of life that is more appealing. I wouldn’t hesitate to read another Tey in the future.
