Apparently, all Hollywood would have gone down on its knees to be photographed by Leslie Searle. So why should he suddenly disappear? Was it murder, or merely some elaborate practical joke? This was a case that required all Detective Inspector Grant's ingenuity.

To Love and Be Wise Summary

To Love and Be Wise by Josephine Tey

It was rumoured that Hollywood stars would go down on their knees for the privilege of being photographed by the good-looking, brilliantly talented and ultra-fashionable portrait photographer Leslie Searle. But what was such a gifted creature doing in such an English village backwater of Salcott St Mary? And why - and how - did he disappear? If a crime had been committed, was it murder...fraud...or simply some macabre practical joke?

To Love and Be Wise Reviews

"Josephine Tey has always been absolutely reliable in producing original and mysterious plots with interesting characters and unguessable endings." "-- Spectator""Worth reading for its ingenious denouement." "-- Times Literary Supplement""Nobody can beat Miss Tey at characterisation or elegance of style: this novel's a beauty." "-- San Francisco Chronicle"
