Miss Silver helps a woman with no memory reconstruct a terrible crime
She awakes in a dark place. A young woman with a shattered memory, she knows neither who she is nor how she came to be in this abandoned house. All she possesses is a faint sense that someone is lying dead at the foot of the stairs. Horrifyingly, she is correct. In the cellar lies a young woman, her body broken, her head split, her life undone by a revolver’s shell. The amnesiac flees and finally has a stroke of luck: She meets Maud Silver.
A dowdy governess turned daring detective, Miss Silver sees immediately that something is wrong. She comforts the confused young woman, and coaxes out of her what little story she can tell. The memory of the body sets Miss Silver on a fantastic adventure - the last written by Patricia Wentworth, and one of the most thrilling of them all.

Amnesia and Silver again
I always like books in which the main character is battling through amnesia and this story has plenty of that, however I did find the plot pulled together very tenuously right at the end and hung on too many chance encounters of critical characters.
The case of William smith, because of the amnesia in both stories.
The pace of narration could be quicker when it isn't Miss Silver speaking.
