    Marion and Geoffrey Grey had a wonderful marriage Geoffrey was well established with his uncle s Accounting firm, and Marion had been a part time model until she became pregnant with their first child.Then one evening Geoffrey is called to his uncle s home and when he arrives his uncle is dead at his desk A gun that Geoffrey had left in his uncle s care when he got married is lying on the floor near the patio doors where he had entered Geoffrey picks up the gun and hears a woman s scream outside the door between the office and the hall, shortly followed by pounding on the door Geoffrey goes to the door and unlocks it to find Mr Mercer his uncle s butler and Mrs Mercer his uncle s cook on the other side.Fast forward, and Geoffrey is in prison, Marion has a miscarriage, and is a shadow of her former self Hilary is Marion s cousin and a huge supporter of Geoffrey s She doesn t believe for one moment that he committed the murder of his uncle Estranged from her almost fiance Henry, and shut out by Marion s refusal to talk about what happened, Hilary decides to investigate on her own.I noticed in the first Miss Silver book that Miss Silver herself does not come into the story until somewhere aro...

    Rating 3.5 of fiveSexist, silly, and slow.Trust in me all in all, or trust me not at all, folks, this offers the modern reader mysteries few of the pleasures we presently expect The pace is killed dead as a rock by the documents the author plops right in the beginning, and later the documentary urge is revived right at the end It s deadly dull because it goes on too long It works to get dreary information fed to you, the reader, but wowee toledo does it bog the pace down.The author relies quite heavily on coincidence as well as Death by Documents The number of fortuitous encounters between Miss Hilary Carew and Mrs Mercer Gracious goodness me, the way they practically bounce off each other like billiard balls you d think England was some teeny tiny little island or something I live on a quite small barrier island off the south shore of a bigger island and I don t coincidentally run into people I absolutely must encounter above once a week sarcasmThe sexism is really surprising Miss Hilary Carew wants her big, dashing...

    Geoffrey Grey is in prison for murdering his uncle, but both his wife Marion and their cousin, Hilary, are convinced that he did not do it The world, however, believes that the right man is in prison When a strange woman accosts Hilary on a train, her suspicions are aroused She starts poking her nose into the old case, and almost gets murdered for her troubles She turns to her ex fianc , Henry, who in turn turns to Miss Silver.Just like the first book, Miss Silver is a shadowy presence and only comes into the picture in brief intervals as a consultant This is not her story, but that of Hilary, and I don t think it is any worse for that I loved this very typical golden age mystery.The villains were pretty obvious right from the beginning, but the fun lay in how they are brought to justice Hilary was a fun character, and while Marion and Henry both got irritating at times, there we...

    It s funny how two people can read the same book and come to such opposite conclusions It s almost like we didn t read the same book So one of my goodreads friends said this book is sexist, silly and slow I guess there are sexist elements but that s pretty common in books from that time period it was published in 1937 Personally, I think it s difficult to make that as...

    Read this for a reading challenge It is a good old fashioned murder mystery Patricia Wentworth wrote many Miss Silver mysteries and I can t think of any pleasant pursuit than reading through all of them Although Miss Silver is the private investigator, in this book, the other characters ...
