  • Kelenn
I like the setting -- a Victorian monstrosity of a house at the British seaside. Major James Harwick and his wife Carmona plan to sell the house, so the gathering of friends and connections for this holiday has an ephemeral quality. Anything might happen, and the first thing that happens is a murder.

Alan Field, movie-star handsome and always in want of money, shows up unexpectedly at Cliff's Edge. He knows everyone in the house. In fact, years ago he jilted Cremona at the very altar. As he re-connects with everyone, he seems to upset them one by one. When he is murdered in the night, the relief is palpable. But he murder investigation sets off a new wave of anxiety. Miss Silver happens to be taking a seaside holiday in the neighbor, and she quickly becomes part of the detective work.

I notice different elements of Miss Silver's prim Victorian appearance in every book. In this book, I was especially taken with her deep Edwardian fringe in front, her close coils behind, and the overall restraining net. Miss Silver still dresses her hair and her person as she did when she was a governess. And she continues to apply Victorian standards to behavior, to analyze character as a Victorian novelist might, to find a moral in everything, and to see the world through Tennyson's eyes.

There are plenty of credible suspects with strong motives to put an end to the handsome Alan Field. The romantic element always present in Wentworth mysteries is particularly interesting in that it concerns married couples rather than young lovers. And the reader is treated to a host of juicy scandals and more than one murder.

A large number of Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver detective stories have come to Kindle which will be of benefit to those who are fans of the Classic British mystery. Less appealing than the first rank in that genre, these books are none the less appealing and intriguing, they do involve the reader. This one is no exception. A real bad 'un has returned to his native heath in which, among other things, he left a childhood friend and sweetheart waiting at the altar, an explanatory letter arriving the next day. Of course, this return coincides with a gathering of family and family friends at the home of the now wed sweetheart. Trouble is sure to follow. By authorial coincidence, Miss Silver is visiting in the immediate vicinity and is employed (although the financial arrangements are never mentioned) to save the police from arresting the wrong person.There are a handful of suspects, a tangle of misleading clues and Miss Silver to keep Justice from being blind. There are certain weaknesses in the final section of the book, but not sufficiently significant enough to detract from the overall virtues of the effort. It should be a good read for the devotees of this type of story.

I discovered Miss Silver when the books were re-released in the 90's. I bought as many as I could find then, and have been rereading them, so I began looking for more. Although these books are somewhat dated, the stories ring true, and it is comforting to read an author who sets in the middle between the outright fantasy of a lot of "cozies" and "hardboiled".

Miss Silver would have been a wonderful person to know in real life ... if I were not guilty of a crim.
  • Bukus
Pleasant books to read.
  • wanderpool
Miss Wentworth writes great mystery novels with good character and plot development plus a little romance too!
  • Washington
Again, love the Miss Silver mysteries. I will be so sad when I've read them all. I hope they keep coming.
One of Wentworth's best.
