Publisher's Summary

The first of the classic mysteries featuring governess-turned-detective Miss Silver, who investigates a deadly conspiratorial ring.
Charles Moray has come home to England to collect his inheritance. After four years wandering the jungles of India and South America, the hardy young man returns to the manor of his birth, where generations of Morays have lived and died. Strangely, he finds the house unlocked, and sees a light on in one of its abandoned rooms. Eavesdropping, he learns of a conspiracy to commit a fearsome crime.
Never one for the heroic, Charles’s first instinct is to let the police settle it. But then he hears her voice. Margaret, his long lost love, is part of the gang. To unravel their diabolical plot, he contacts Miss Silver, a onetime governess who applies her reason to solve crimes and face the dangers of London’s underworld.

Yes - it is gripping and takes you to another world


Who was your favorite character and why?

All the characters are well delineated and it is very authentically of its time.


Any additional comments?

The narrator reads skilfully. if you like Agatha Christie or Margery Allingham you will very much enjoy these and I have enjoyed them more than the Ngaio Marsh series - Miss Silver and Patricia Wentworth deserve to be very much better known.

None in particular, although the ending was good.


What about Diana Bishop’s performance did you like?

I thought she was perfect as the narrator. Her style and delivery is very good and evocative of the period.

No, I enjoyed the whole thing.


Any additional comments?

This is the first Patricia Wentworth I have listened to and I will be listening to more especially if Diana Bishop is the narrator. They are stories for fans of old fashioned detective stories. Absolutely first rate.
