The Blind Side
Format: Mass Market Paperback|Change

on 3 July 2016
This was a good read. I've read it several times in the past, and it is lovely to have a new copy that doesn't fall apart. It's a country-house murder with the variation of being a town-based house which has been turned into apartments. I prefer the familiar Lamb/Abbott detective combo to Benbow Smith, and this was a highly enjoyable story of the traditional Golden Age mystery type, complete with Wentworth's customary romance. Not brilliant, but a creditable performance.

I love these vintage crime stories! I never knew that Patricia Wentworth wrote books that didn’t always star Miss Silver. This is a delightful vintage yarn, with twists and turns. A fun read.

Very enjoyable read - well plotted and entertaining. Having been a fan of Miss Silver for many years, I am delighted to find all these additional 'non-Silver' books she wrote. They will give me many hours of happy reading!

Enjoyable read, but not one of her best.

Retread after about fifty years not one of her best by a long way, but I find all her books pleasantly nostalgic. I wish one didn't have to have pages describing Miss silver's clothes , furniture and knitting every time, but I suppose it is necessary for new readers.Anyway, I've almost worked through the lot now (I already own a very large number in paper or hardback, and it's been good fun. I do wonder, though, if village life was really like that (murders apart). I was alive throughout the period (I am 93) but lived in towns.

The detectives are Frank Abbott and Ernest Lamb, who later featured as major recurring characters in the Miss Silver series. I believe there are two other books with Abbott and Lamb - Who Pays the Piper and Pursuit of a Parcel. It is interesting to see the characters in the early stages of their careers and development. The plot is a enjoyable whodunnit in a similar style to later Patricia Wentworth books. I would recommend it particularly to Miss Silver fans who will enjoy reading about the early Abbott and Lamb.
