Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Brilliant narration and a good mystery"

    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.

    Story
    "Is you enjoy Agatha Christie, you'll like this."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If my friend likes a good old fashioned who done it, yes I would.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case Is Closed?

    I don't know you could ever answer this question without giving away spoilers.


    What does Diana Bishop bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She was a good narrator .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen in forty minute clumps, ( my drive to and from work) which was fine for this book.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Classic detection"

    Period piece which strings together well. The heroine wavers between plucky and gushing. Miss Silver sorts it all out.

    "Discovery!"

    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.

    Story
    "The clocks are ticking, Miss Silver is on the case"

    The second book in the Miss Maud Silver mysteries.

    There was a 10 years gap between Grey Mask (Miss Silver Book #1) and The Case is Closed (Book #2), in which she wrote a number of non Miss Silver mysteries. She brought Miss Silver back due to popular demand, and continued to write 30 more in the series, bringing the total up to 32 books.

    The Miss Silver mysteries are my go to reads/listen, and have been since I was 14. I think that it is the fact that Ms Wentworth was an excellent story-teller, bringing mystery and romance to each book she wrote in the series.

    There have been several narrators over the years, but I personally love listening to Diana Bishop, who I think brings the stories alive with her narration.

    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.

    If you have not yet read any of the Miss Silver mysteries yet, you are missing out!

    "A Good Listen"

    Well written and tense. Very enjoyable even though the likely culprit was not difficult to guess. I would have liked more of Miss Silver in it and less of the heroine.
