Publisher's Summary

When a question of inheritance turns fatal, Miss Silver searches for the killer.

Jenny has never been one to feel sorry for herself. The illegitimate child of a wealthy man and a statureless woman, she has been an orphan since before she can remember. It is a hard life made bearable only by the kindness of her guardian, an old woman named Miss Garstone, who has always treated Jenny as her own.

Struck down by a motorist, "Garsty" dies, whispering to Jenny that her parents were actually married, and she is the rightful heir to the Alington fortune. Miss Garstone was not the only one who knew the secret, and as Jenny grieves, her wealthy cousins work to protect their fortune. When the quiet conflict turns deadly, governess-turned-detective Miss Silver is the only one who can unravel the perplexing family saga.

Had me from the first chapter to the last

The best in this series so far, well written and flowed seamlessly through the plot. I will certainly re read this book again. Loved the way the story presented and kept me on edge - not wanting to put it down.
Narrator is brilliant the way she gets into the reading of the characters.
Have listened to 9 in the series so far and will be more than happy to keep listening to many more.

Wentworth comes through again.

The narrator was, as always, good at varying both pace and volume as appropriate. Story and teller appeared made for each other.

Excellent read.
