Summary

Mary Stokes was walking through Dead Man's Copse one evening when she saw, in the beam of a torch, the corpse of a young woman dressed in a black coat, black gloves, no hat and an eternity ring set with diamonds in her ear. But when she and Detective Sergeant Frank Abbott went back to the wood the body had vanished. This would have been mystery enough for Miss Silver to solve if a woman had not also reported that her lodger had gone out on Friday dressed in a black coat, black beret, black shoes and large hoop earrings 'set all round with little diamonds like those eternity rings.'

What did you like most about Eternity Ring?

I love this good old fashioned stories, I liked the feisty character of Cecily and am find of recurring character Frank Abbott.

What did you like best about this story?

That I guessed who did it but it was still worth listening to the whole story unfold.

Have you listened to any of Diana Bishop’s other performances? How does this one compare?

All of her Miss Silver stories - I wish I could rewind and discover them fresh all over again, I love them. This one is a 4 out of 5, but only because the character of Miss Silver herself does not get much of a look in in Eternity Ring.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A detective worthy of Sherlock Holmes in 'Victorian Governess' clothing with a good dose of common sense, human kindness and a clean handkerchief ready at all times.

Any additional comments?

Try one of the other 31 stories before this one...Danger Point or The Alington Inheritance maybe.
