It has more twists and turns than the building's staircase. But not to worry! When all is said and done Miss Silver has knitted out a solution and won the hearts of those involved. After all, one can't have too many woolen socks. Jul 07, Sue Dix rated it really liked it.
Another wonderful Miss Silver mystery. Patricia Wentworth has become one of my favorite mystery writers. Miss Silver is a fabulous private investigator. She figures in each book, but the other characters are so well developed that one almost forgets her until she makes her most propitious entrance and solves the mystery.

This was the best of the Miss Silver mysteries so far. I've enjoyed them all, but this one was particularly good, with its plethora of characters and suspects. All the characters were well drawn, the protagonist Meade Underwood wasn't too much of a ditz as a couple of protagonists in the previous books in the series were. There were lovely red herrings galore, amusing references to those wretched murder mysteries that make the cops look bad, and Miss Silver herself, winning admiration and pr This was the best of the Miss Silver mysteries so far.
There were lovely red herrings galore, amusing references to those wretched murder mysteries that make the cops look bad, and Miss Silver herself, winning admiration and producing astonishment everywhere she goes.

Another competent cozy set during WWII, with not one but two ingenues, blackmail, many double identities, amnesia, and of course the bullish Chief Inspector Lamb, his urbane u Serling Abbot, and the mild-mannered spinster detective Miss Silver. The war only intrudes as ration coupons, military ranks, and blackout curtains, but English society from top to bottom all get a cameo.

The sixth in the series, this story focuses on the inmates of Vandeleur house and the murder that takes place on its once grand upper floors. The house was once a showplace of the Victorian era--home to a famous court painter. Since then it has been divided into eight flats with secrets behind every door.
There is the woman whose circumstances have changed and who is steadily selling off her possessions just to have money to live. There is the secretive gentleman who won't tell anyone what he does for a living.

One evening Meade is on her way home after running errands for her aunt when she runs into Giles.

Their courtship had been a short one, so all memory of Meade and their engagement are gone.
Miss Silver Deals with Death [Miss Silver Intervenes] (Miss Silver #6)
As Meade and Giles start to get to know one another again, the secrets in Vandeleur house start trickling out. Carola Roland claims a prior acquaintance with Giles Meanwhile, Mrs. Underwood consults Miss Silver about the blackmail but before much can be done Carola is murdered and Giles becomes a chief suspect. Hot on the trail of the blackmailer, Miss Silver manages to uncover all of the secrets lurking behind the closed doors of Vandeleur house Miss Silver is good comfort, cozy reading. I'm not entirely sure how well the temporary, partial amnesia is portrayed I enjoyed the way Wentworth handled her characters and let us in on the secrets behind the flat doors.
Three stars for a comfortable read. This was first posted on my blog My Reader's Block. Please request permission before reposting any portion. Dec 12, Orinoco Womble tidy bag and all rated it liked it Shelves: mental-popcorn , whodunit-howdunit-whydunit. An unengaging title for what was an entertaining sort of read. Blackmail, murder, a ghostly visitor on a misty night, and a touch of international espionage.
