A story truly set in the past - nicely creepy!

Where does The Benevent Treasure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I found this story more exciting than perhaps Through the Wall which is the most recent Miss Silver book I have listened to

Which scene did you most enjoy?

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.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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!

Another great book

I have listened to all the Miss Silver books and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. If you like Agatha Christie you'll love these.
