review Miss Pym Disposes Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Ith tension Beneath the so normal surface run sinister undercurrents of rivalry and jealousy Then comes tragedy A. Despite many people telling me that Josephine Tey is their favourite Golden Age author I have struggled with the books I tried previously As such I was a little dubious about this but I am glad that I gave it a try Published in 1946 this is a stand alone mystery set in Leys Physical Training College Indeed Tey herself attended a similar college and taught physical education in various schools so this is a world she knew well The Miss Pym of the title is Lucy Pym who to her own surprise wrote a successful psychology book and finds herself a sudden success When an old school friend now head of Leys asks her to come and speak she remembers how Henrietta Hodge once stepped in when she was being teased and agrees to come Although this is a crime novel it is much a character study Although at first Miss Pym is eager to leave she gradually finds herself drawn in to the life of the College and to get to know the students and staff Miss Hodge has the task of matching students to possible positions and with the students about to leave there is always much excitement when she reads out a name However when a brilliant student is passed over for a plum position it creates a bad feeling and leaves Miss Pym with a feeling of dangerI don t think that Tey will ever be my favourite author but I am pleased that I read this mature intelligent and well written novel and glad that I gave her work another chance
