About the Author:

Patricia Wentworth (1878–1961) was one of the masters of classic English mystery writing. Born in India as Dora Amy Elles, she began writing after the death of her first husband, publishing her first novel in 1910. In the 1920s, she introduced the character who would make her famous: Miss Maud Silver, the former governess whose stout figure, fondness for Tennyson, and passion for knitting served to disguise a keen intellect. Along with Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple, Miss Silver is the definitive embodiment of the English style of cozy mysteries.

From AudioFile:

Written in 1929, a year before the publication of Agatha Christie's first Miss Marple, Wentworth's mystery features Miss Silver, an elderly private investigator who puts aside her voracious knitting to help Charles Moray untangle a vicious conspiracy. Moray has returned from four years abroad after being jilted a week before his wedding. Now he finds that his former fiance is involved in sinister activities. Rather than going to the police, he turns to Miss Silver for assistance. Diana Bishop delivers an old-fashioned performance that works well with the vintage story. A little more differentiation between voices would be helpful, but the plot rolls along, keeping the listener engaged. S.S.R. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
