A lovely copy with faint edgewear. No spine or cover creases, page edges palest yellow.; Inspector Alan Grant investigates a mother and daughter accused of kidnapping a local young woman. Basis for 1951 movie of the same name starring John Bailey and Michael Denison (and including Patrick Troughton of Dr. Who fame.); "Marion Sharpe and her mother seem an unlikely duo to be found on the wrong side of the law. Quiet and ordinary, they have led a peaceful and unremarkable life at their country home, The Franchise. Unremarkable that is, until the police turn up with a demure young woman on their doorstep. Not only does Betty Kane accuse them of kidnap and abuse, she can back up her claim with a detailed description of the attic room in which she was kept, right down to the crack in its round window."

'I love Josephine Tey as well. My favourites are 'Brat Farrar' and 'The Franchise Affair'. -Tricia K. 'I love the Alan Grant mysteries'. -Karen K. 'I do have them all but think The Franchise Affair is my favorite.'-Louise D. 'Brat Farrar, Miss Pym, The Franchise Affair, and the Daughter of Time at the very top of my favorites list.' Sulie P. This author's books recommended by *many* other members of the DE Stevenson email discussion group including Elizabeth B., Jane S., Sheila, Susan D, Beatrice H., Julie B., Kristi J. and Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog.
