A gardener's death sends a country house into a frenzy, and Miss Silver swoops in to set things right.
Edward Random returns to Deeping a forgotten man. Although raised in the village's manor house, he is no longer wealthy - the result of a quarrel with an uncle, which left him out of the old man's will. For years Edward's name has not been spoken in the town, save for wild rumors that he had gone to prison for dueling, decamped to the Orient, or simply died of mysterious circumstances. In fact he is in good health, ready to start life where he left off, money or no money.
But the old family feud stands in his way, and the situation at the manor house grows vicious in the wake of the undergardener William Jackson's death. Did he drown by accident, or was he murdered? Only Maud Silver, the demure but brilliant detective, can say for sure.

"Really very good"
This is the 2nd Audible by Patricia Wentworth that I've listened to. I've read several of her books and enjoyed them so to find them on Audible and have them read to me has been a real find! I'll be getting all of them eventually. The narration by Diana Bishop is excellent as well.
