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.

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
