      Aug 04,  · This month's Reading Notes series is on books by Josephine Tey (the better-known pen-name of Elizabeth MacKintosh). The first post is all about Brat Farrar which is one of my two favorite Tey books. There will be spoilers! (But this matters less with Tey than with most mystery writers.) Brat Farrar does not begin with. Brat Farrar is one of Tey's few non-Inspector Grant books. She still makes a few genre-bending steps by revealing the main character's impersonation deception at the front end. Despite that revelation early on, there is still a constant level of suspense and increasing danger throughout the book.4/5(59).

Read book reviews & excerpts, watch author videos & allmusictrends.comed on: September 02, Dec 06,  · Brat Farrar by Josephine Tey Mystery First Published in Audio book narrated by Carole Boyd Dear FCC: I’d heard of this book for a long time, but .

      Brat Farrar is, arguably, her best book. It is a psychological thriller in which nearly every character comes fully to life as a real person. The action is rather slow (except for a few pages near the end) and some of the "surprises" are not very surprising, but one's interest in the interplay between Brat and his "victims" is a never ending 5/5(4). [Brat Farrar] is a mystery book, one with a mysterious death, but it isn't what I'd classify as "Murder 'n' Mayhem." It's a mystery within a mystery. The setup: Brat Farrar, a year-old orphan, just returned to England after living and working in the U.S. for several years, is accosted on the street by a man who calls him "Simon."4/5(59).
