Product Description

Review

A particular favourite (Andrew Taylor)

Miss Silver is marvellous (Daily Mail)

. . . some of the best examples of the British country-house murder mystery (Alfred Hitchcock magazine)

Miss Silver has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot (Manchester Evening News)

Miss Wentworth is a first rate story-teller (Daily Telegraph)

You can't go wrong with Miss Maud Silver (Observer)

Miss Wentworth's plot is ingenious, her characterization acute, her solution satisfying (The Scotsman)

Patricia Wentworth has created a great detective in Miss Silver, the little old lady who nobody notices, but who in turn notices everything (Paula Gosling)

Book Description

A bloody curse fells four before Miss Silver investigates in this classic crime mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 23 Jun 2011
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Miss Silver is asked to investigate when Roger Pilgrim is the victim of two unexplained accidents either of which could have killed him. Frank Abbot - Scotland Yard detective - tries to dissuade his friend Judy Eliot from taking up employment as a parlour maid at Roger's house, Pilgrim's Rest. There have been several unexplained deaths and disappearances connected with the house in the last few years and it seems as though the house carries its own bad luck.

There will be several more suspicious deaths before the local police - headed by Randall March an erstwhile pupil of Miss Silver's - manage to work out who is responsible. Miss Silver meanwhile keeps her own counsel and continues to knit imperturbably, smiling enigmatically when the police fail to see what is under their noses.

I really enjoy the Miss Silver books because they are based on character and motivation rather than excessive violence. Miss Silver is very good at spotting the details that others miss and of course as an elderly lady she is able to fade into the background and be overlooked by everyone - including the murderer. This book is well up Patricia Wentworth's high standard of writing and I thoroughly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 16 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Poor at almost every level - plot, characterization, and resolution of the case. Not even the moral was good, with the criminal escaping justice at the end. Definitely one of Wentworth's worst efforts in my experience.

The reader is given the impression that this was a potboiler, cooked up in a hurry with only one eye on the structure of the plot - and then a sudden injection of drama for the finale, followed by a hastily written (and most unsatisfactory) tying of loose ends. Not one of the characters carried any conviction.

Naturally, we don't read this type of story as an intellectual exercise, but for the relaxing effect of its anodyne quality, however there has to be a limit to the extent to which we should be expected to suspend disbelief. If this limit is ignored, then the reader loses faith with the author. Personally speaking, it decided me to look elsewhere for my 1930s/40s whodunit reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thrilling joyride 28 Nov 2014

I love, love, love this book. Having already read everything Agatha Christie and Josephine Tey ever wrote it is great to discover a "new" author who has the same style and flair for storytelling. Would recommend for all classic thriller fans.
