As a devastating war rages abroad, a young woman falls to her death at Charleston Farmhouse on the Sussex Downs.
But was it an accident?
Years later, Josephine Tey returns to the same house - now much changed - and remembers the two women with whom she once lodged as a young teacher during the Great War. As past and present collide, with murders decades apart, Josephine is forced to face the possibility that the scandal which threatened to destroy those women's lives hid a much darker secret.
Sorry for the Dead is the eighth book in the 'Josephine Tey' series, at once a compelling murder mystery and a moving exploration of love and grief.
