9780062195432 Nicola Upson blends biography and fiction, excitement and menace, and a touch of Alfred Hitchcock in Fear in the Sunlight, a mystery starring real-life writer Josephine Tey. Summer, 1936: Josephine Tey joins her friends in the resort village of Portmeirion to celebrate her fortieth birthday. Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, are there to sign a deal to film Josephineâ€™s novel, A Shilling for Candles, and Alfred Hitchcock has one or two tricks up his sleeve to keep the holiday party entertainedâ€”and expose their deepest fears. But things get out of hand when one of Hollywoodâ€™s leading actresses is brutally slashed to death in a cemetery near the village. The following day, fear and suspicion take over in a setting where nothingâ€”and no oneâ€”is quite what it seems. Based in part on the life of Josephine Teyâ€”one of the most popular, best-loved crime writers of the Golden Age, Nicola Upsonâ€™s Fear in the Sunlight features legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock as a prominent characterâ€”and features theÂ classic suspense and psychological tension that fans of Hitchcock films love.
