Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

There’s nothing like listening to an old-fashioned English cozy on a cold autumn night. This vintage Patricia Wentworth mystery features Miss Silver, formerly a governess, now a genteel private detective who knits and uses her considerable wits to solve murder mysteries that plague England from 1928 to 1961. Miss Silver is often compared to Miss Marple—both are elderly, timeless, and endearing—but Miss Silver is not nearly as well known even though she premiered two years before Miss Marple. Seasoned narrator Diana Bishop brings Wentworth's charming sleuth to life and draws the listener into this story of a girl gone missing. All of the characters are well portrayed, and the story, while suspenseful, feels satisfyingly comfortable and familiar. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2009]
