Tey, Josephine: To Love and Be Wise, v.1, 21 July 2008.

Josephine Tey [Elizabeth MacKintosh] (1896–1952)
To love and Be Wise (1950)

An American goes missing in a country village inhabited by artistic types. Inspector Grant investigates…

Spoiler:
This has plot devices similar to those used subsequently in Ruth Rendell’s first novel, ‘From Doon with Death,’ [1964] and, to a lesser extent, in her later novel ‘A Sleeping Life’.

Alan Grant Mysteries of Josephine Tey

1929 The Man in the Queue - originally written under the name Gordon Daviot, introduced the Inspector Alan Grant of Scotland Yard.

1936 A Shilling for Candles - the first mystery in which Daviot used the name Josephine Tey.

1948 The Franchise Affair - an updated, fictionalized version of a real case centering around Elizabeth Canning which took place in the 18th Century England and became a cause célèbre

1950 To Love and Be Wise - has many scenes which spoof the arts community, as well as excoriating popular novelists.

1951 The Daughter of Time - Grant bounces ideas off of the other people in his life--nurses, doctors, and acquaintances to illustrate the reactions of varying personalities to the information he discovers; this gives him opportunities to expound on his findings and theories.

1952 The Singing Sands - the final Tey mystery (found among her documents after her death), Alan Grant, on sick leave due to claustrophobia and being on the verge of a nervous breakdown, travels on a night train bound for the Scottish Highlands in order to recuperate

Good stuff. There was a very good dramatization of "The Singing Sands" on BBC Radio 7 not too long ago, which was my first exposure to the Inspector Grant books.
