On vacation in a tiny village, Miss Silver investigates a murder with a decades-old motive.
The citizens of Melling are perfectly ordinary—exactly the sort one finds in just about every cozy English village—and to a certain person they might even appear boring. But to Miss Silver, people are always interesting. It has been some years since she gave up work as a governess to become a detective, and her interest in people has served her well. She comes to Melling on vacation—a long postponed visit to an old school chum—but Miss Silver’s business is murder, and her vacations never last long.
The town’s prodigal son has returned, wealthy and without nostalgia for the village of his birth. He intends to sell his manor house and be done with Melling forever. But Melling has not finished with him.

"Wonderful British Cosy"
One of the top 10
In this book, Hilary Carew
Superb, fantastic narrater
Please put more of the rarer Patricia Wentworth books on your list. There are many that are only collectors items in price that many reader cannot afford. />However, if you do, make them available, none other than Diana Bishop should narrate them
This was a well plotted mystery with many suspects meticulously narrowed to the culprit. The narration was well suited too.
"One of Miss Silver's Best"
Fast paced, enough dead bodies, some romance, and a new outfit for little Josephine. What else could you ask for? The murderer was a surprise until near the end. A thoroughly enjoyable mystery f the ld school.
"One of her best"
Good book. Good story. Love the reader.
As always a good read. One of my favorites. Four more words needed.
