Publisher's Summary

Things had never been quite the same at Latter End since Lois had taken over. Suddenly life seemed to be an endless succession of bitter family rows which Lois, needless to say, invariably won. More than one person at Latter End found themselves stretched to the limit by Lois and her bullying, and it was only a matter of time before somebody snapped. It was unthinkable of course...but if anyone ever murdered Lois Latter, it would be very embarrassing to discover just how many people might have wished her dead.

Disappointing.

I've started to enjoy Miss Silver stories but this one was a bit disappointing. It depended less on logic and problem solving than on watching events occur.

Excellent book

This mystery was fantastic. Patricia Wentworth wrote with passion and understanding of human narure. Wonderful book with interesting charatures, great plot. So well written that I was hoping the wife would die too. Worth reading.

Quintessential unassuming elderly detective

The unique, Tennyson-quoting Miss Silver is on another adventure of solving mysteries and puzzles via her intellectual ability and her relationship-building skills. Always entertaining, even if the mysteries are occasionally formulaic. #intriguing #knitting #professionaldetective #tagsgiving #sweepstakes #femaleprotagonist

Clever Who-dunnit Twist

The author does tend to wallow in Freudian rhetoric a bit much in this book. I really enjoyed the twist Wentworth gave to this who-dunnit, I didn’t see that coming at all.

Pay Attention to the Psychic.

Patricia Wentworth is my guilty secret in mysteries. Among contemporary murder mysteries with body parts all over the place and vampires and zombies, one is not amused or even entertained. These quiet little old family murders and the horror over scandal after the dirty deed are so much fun, that they are only exceeded by the pleasure in dialogue. Loved this one, because, perhaps she believed in Karma.

Loved the Story but..

While I liked that Miss Silver was less an observer and more a participant, I think she did not need to detail another explanation after the case concluded.

Also, though the story began with the inference that there was more reason for the victim's behavior than was obvious, that aspect was never again mentioned.

Otherwise, I enjoyed the character interaction and the excellent narration.
