Tey, Josephine: A Shilling for Candles, v.1, 16 August 2008.

Josephine Tey
[Elizabeth MacKintosh] (1896–1952)
A Shilling for Candles (1936)

Another classic detective novel, recently released on PG Australia.
A film star is found drowned on a beach. It is murder. Inspector Grant investigates. Meanwhile a suspect goes on the run…

A much-altered version of this novel provided the basis of Hitchcock's 1937 movie Young and Innocent.

Oh, my goodness! I never expected to find any of Tey's work here! I'm so excited - she's probably my very favorite author!

Thank you so much for posting these!

Tey's work is now entering the public domain in countries that use the "life + 50 years" period for copyrights.

Thus far, there are five posted at MobileRead:

I'm breathlessly anticipating _The Daughter of Time_, myself.

Assume they'll be up within about a day after electronic copy to work from becomes available. We await people scanning and proofing.

Meanwhile, there are many wonderful things already available on MobileRead to tide you over while you wait.

Welcome to the forum, CCLady.

My source for the Josephine Tey novels was Project Gutenberg Australia.
I've been checking almost every day in the hopes of seeing either The Singing Sands or Daughter of Time. When they appear, then I'll convert them.

If anyone finds another source then do let me know.

I've now uploaded The Singing Sands.
We only need The Daughter of Time.

Edited to add that I've now uploaded a copy of The Daughter of Time.

Patricia, thanks for uploading this book, which I have just read and enjoyed. I only recently discovered Josephine Tey, and am looking forward to trying more of her work.
