A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey

Josephine Tey's detective, Inspector Grant, is more clumsy and endearing in his work than many of his counterparts in crime literature. He could not solve this crime without the assistance of Erica Burgoyne, an equally endearing 17-year old who idolizes him and possesses a talent for clever detecting. Tey's writing can become too clever at times; that's my only reservation about this absorbing story.
