Taken in by her two great-aunts, Candida Sayle fears she may become the next victim of the Benevent Treasure, which is said to bring death to anyone who touches it, while Miss Silver investigates the death of a former Benevent employee.

I have always loved to read, mainly classic detective stories, and audible allows me to 'read' whilst I'm cooking dinner 😀
I found this story more exciting than perhaps Through the Wall which is the most recent Miss Silver book I have listened to
The opening scene where Candida is rescued - this sets the tone nicely and introduces us to two of the main characters years before the murder story begins.
When I first read this book many years ago I found it to be pleasantly thrilling and creepy - there's nothing like cobwebbed cellars to enhance a crime novel!
