Synopsis: Bill Waring is collecting his wits in hospital after a train crash when he discovers that Lady Dryden, has pressured his fiancée Lila into an engagement with Herbert Whitall. Whitall is aggressive, with a cold-hearted possessiveness that expands past the bounds of the ivory collection he can't bear to lose. His employees hate him, Lila is terrified of him and it appears that he even has a hold on Lady Dryden. When a dagger in Whitall's collection becomes the instrument of his own death, there are many suspects. Miss Maud Silver must see that justice is done, not merely to punish the guilty, but to protect the innocent.
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.
