James and Carmona Hardwick are spending the summer playing host to numerous friends and relatives in an old Hardwick family residence by the sea. The arrival of Alan Field, a devastatingly handsome though shady figure from Carmona's past, destroys the holiday atmosphere in the old house and replaces it with a mounting tension, culminating in murder. Fortunately, Miss Silver is present to unravel the complex mystery and seek out the murderer amongst them.

"Wentworth classics never disappioint"
I love most all things in the Wentworth mysteries. Miss Silver, most certainly!
Cannot define just one. Love the interactions between the lovers/friends. Wentworth is an expert at dialogue. A master.
Yes. I have listened to Ms. Bishop many times. She is good in that she does not over-act and keep raising her voice. Who wants to hear shouting in an audible book?
Mostly. I read all of Wentworth long ago when I was still able to read a proper, print book, before my eyes went wonky.
I'd say Wentworth is one of those amazing ladies of the Cozy Mystery/Tea Cake Ladies genre. I wish we had some NOW.
"The reader was very disappointing."
I love Miss Silver Mysteries, but couldn't tolerate the reader.
Yes, I love Patricia Wentworth.
Yes, because I usually enjoy her performance. This one was just not up to her usual standard.
