The Everton murder case has long been closed. The culprit has been charged with the murder of his uncle and has served a year of his sentence already. Or has he? The evidence against Geoffrey Grey is convincing but his wife believes in his innocence. And so does her young cousin, Hilary, who decides to solve the mystery herself. But when Hilary herself is nearly murdered she turns in desperation to her ex-fiancé for help. He calls upon the services of Miss Silver to help solve another mystery, which she does in her own original style.

Joined Audible in the beginning! 30s, working and a mum, into classic murder mystery, historical, amusing, and Terry Pratchett!
This is a classic mystery novel that allows you to listen and use your own 'little grey cells' to work it out - the sort of book I love! Ending a bit predictable as a who-done-it, but not necessarily a how-they-done-it!, I enjoyed and liked the characters and have now started downloading the whole series! Well read as well.
My name is Julie and I'm a middle aged woman who enjoys good writing, and good narration.
If my friend likes a good old fashioned who done it, yes I would.
I don't know you could ever answer this question without giving away spoilers.
She was a good narrator .
I listen in forty minute clumps, ( my drive to and from work) which was fine for this book.
This is a good old fashioned who dun it, it wasn't particularly difficult to work out who did do it, and why, from very early on, but it was a pleasant " listen" but not a story to stretch the listener.
I hadn't read Patricia Wentworth before and being a fan of this early 20th century genre I tried this. It is thoroughly enjoyable and so well written and the reading is excellent.
