About the Author:

Patricia Wentworth was born in Uttarakhand, India but as a young girl moved to London to study at Blackheath High School for Girls. After writing several romances she turned her hand to crime fiction. She wrote dozens of bestselling mysteries before her death in 1961, and is recognised as one of the mistresses of classic crime fiction.

Review:

Miss Silver has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot * Manchester Evening News * You can't go wrong with Miss Maud Silver. * Observer * Miss Silver is marvellous * Daily Mail * ...some of the best examples of the British country-house murder mystery * Alfred Hitchcock Magazine * 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 * Miss Wentworth is a first-rate storyteller * Daily Telegraph *
