James and Carmona Hardwick are spending the summer playing host to numerous friends and relatives in an old Hardwick family residence by the sea. The arrival of Alan Field, a devastatingly handsome though shady figure from Carmona's past, destroys the holiday atmosphere in the old house and replaces it with a mounting tension, culminating in murder. Fortunately, Miss Silver is present to unravel the complex mystery and seek out the murderer amongst them.

Out of the past is up there with all the best murder mystery stories. Really good storyline which leaves the listener guessing 'who dunnit' to the end!
Too many really. Nigh time seaside escapades, unravelling threads to the story and a surprising ending.
Excellent storytelling with the right pace.
