about

When James Lessiter returns to Lenton after many years to claim his family estate, his reappearance opens some old wounds. When he is found bludgeoned to death by a fire poker, the suspects are almost too many to count. From the widow in the guest house, to an angry husband, to a jilted girlfriend, each one has a long-standing grudge against the selfish heir--but only one has the urge to murder.

Luckily, Miss Maud Silver is in town visiting a friend and decides to investigate!

About Patricia Wentworth & Miss Maud Silver
Patricia Wentworth was the pseudonym of Dora Amy Dillon Turnbull, nee Elles who was born in India in 1878. She published her first novel in 1910, ‘A Marriage Under the Terror’, set in the French Revolution, which won the Melrose prize. It was the start of a prolific writing career although she was best known for her crime series featuring former governess turned private investigator, Miss Silver. The first of these, ‘The Grey Mask’ was published in 1928, two years before Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple made her first appearance in ‘The Murder at the Vicarage’. These two protagonists share many of the same characteristics – love of knitting, listening to village gossip and in cahoots with the national if not local police. However, Maud's definitely a professional. And none of that "Oh, I'm just a wooly-headed female" schtick of Miss Marple.
