Fans of cozy mysteries, rejoice! Another Patricia Wentworth title is available in audio. When Rachel Treherne begins to suspect that one of her grasping relatives has designs on her life, she prevails upon shrewd Miss Silver to visit her country home. Diana Bishop portrays the kind but no-nonsense manner of the governess turned private detective. Bishop adopts a slightly softer tone when Miss Silver chooses (like Miss Marple) to act the part of an ineffectual old lady. Other female characters are also amusingly depicted, including Rachel's peevish "invalid" sister, her malicious niece, and her passionately protective servant. A couple of suspenseful passages and a few chilling moments round out the story. A.E.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
