The Franchise Affair
Josephine Tey
Robert Blair, a sober and respectable solicitor in an English market town, had an orderly life and an orderly law practice -- until his phone rang toward the end of one typically dull afternoon.

The call came from an equally sedate local resident named Marion Sharpe, who was in trouble with the police - of all things. Blair, who only knew her by sight, suggested she try the town's more flamboyant low firm, but Marion persisted: she needed help immediately and she wanted him. Blair finally agreed to come, and thereby found himself involved in a struggle to clear the name of the most fascinating woman he had ever met.
