Mary Stokes was walking through Dead Man's Copse one evening when she saw, in the beam of a torch, the corpse of a young woman dressed in a black coat, black gloves, no hat and an eternity ring set with diamonds in her ear. But when she and Detective Sergeant Frank Abbott went back to the wood the body had vanished. This would have been mystery enough for Miss Silver to solve if a woman had not also reported that her lodger had gone out on Friday dressed in a black coat, black beret, black shoes and large hoop earrings 'set all round with little diamonds like those eternity rings.' She never came back...

You can't go wrong with Maud Silver Observer I like Wentworth very much - she captures the mores of pre-war middle class England perfectly, and she writes rather better than Christie. They are romantic cosies, of course, but with an edge to them and an intelligence to the writing that has lasted.

This is 1948, and the murderer is not a serial killer in the modern sense. Women just keep happening to make difficulties for him. And they must be silenced...

Miss Silver is summoned to the village to help her friend Sergeant Frank Abbott assess the character of Mary Stokes, a chic but slippery young woman who claims to have seen a dead woman in Dead Man's Copse. The corpse had only one earring (an eternity ring set with diamonds). The police search the area, but the corpse is nowhere to be found. Is Mary just telling a story to get attention?

Mary's story is just the beginning of a complex mystery that has the police going back and forth between suspects. One of them is a handsome young man whose rich young wife just left him, no one knows why. The rocky relationship between Grant and Cicely Hathaway injects a romantic subplot into the narrative.

While the police make inquiries, searching for bodies and finding them, Miss Silver investigates by listening to gossip at tea parties. As a guest of Frank's aunt, she's always in the parlor observing and listening, and because she's perpetually knitting and looks like a nonentity, people tell her things.

Frank Abbott is as much fun in his way as Miss Silver is in hers. Elegantly dressed and college-educated, he drives his superior crazy with his use of French words. And he can look very stern and implacable, exactly like his grandmother, Lady Evelyn.

This is a first-rate Miss Silver mystery, rich in atmosphere, strong characters, love troubles, and plot twists.

As a reviewer, in the interest of full disclosure, I admit that once I have put an author on my favored list, everything he or she writes is a pleasure to read and I do not differentiate as to quality unless one is completely out of character or particularly entertaining. In this case, for me, this was another good Miss Silver, with its interest and its occasional flaws. It is one of those in which the dowdy looking ex-teacher is pretty much peripheral to the central action although it is her insight that provides vital clues to the police. Once more, we are in a village in which it is difficult to keep anything secret for long. Two women are murdered in separate incidents, which may be associated in some way, the first of whom is marked as a disappearance, save for the hysterical claims of the second. As the investigation proceeds, evidence is adduced to indicate that the sequence of acts leading to one or both murders goes beyond the present and into the recently ended Second World War. Why were these women murdered and who dun it? The investigation narrows the list of suspects to a handful with, ultimately, a favorite candidate emerging. Is he the right one? As with most of the series, there is an element of romance, the successful culmination of which depends upon the outcome of police investigations.
A customary admonition: this is not a taut action drama, it is a slow unfolding of evidence, interrogation, discussion and character, in other words, a typical Classic British Mystery.

I am re-reading all of the Miss Silver mysteries and enjoying them very much. After 20 years, I don't really remember the plots so reading them is like a new experience. I am impressed with the complexity of the plots and the detailed descriptions that flow naturally and do not slow down the pace at all. I am not writing separate reviews for every book as I am now on #15. The books and plots get more complex as you get farther into the series and all have been good so far.

One of Patricia Wentworth's best mysteries, with a view of Frank Abbot's relatives. Exciting plot, moments of humor, and Miss Silver is her lovable self. A genteel mystery-- murder is violent, of course, but all the murders take place offstage.

Wentworth does it again. Her beloved characters and the descriptions of the scenes are wonderful. Again Frank Abbott of Scotland Yard are drawn together to solve the latest mystery. Again how Frank draws from his former schoolteacher now private detective is quite the story. I treasure these Miss Silver Mysteries.

It's been a long time since I'd read the Miss Silver mysteries and I was happy to have encountered one I'd missed. Have to say that I
found it a bit stilted, not recalled as such. And the characteristic traits of Frank one dimensional. However, it's been years and during that time
I have encountered other writers whose styles differ greatly, capturing the reader's imagination in a variety of ways. Yet, Josephine Tey and
Dorothy Sayres are timeless, so perhaps it's simply that Miss Silver is a bit fossilized.

Solid Miss Silver mystery. This is my second one, but I really enjoyed it. There's a missing corpse and identification problems and village issues and a sot of blackmail, and a very tense ending to the book. I would definitely recommend it. This is not an overly active mystery, although Miss Silver gets around better than Miss Marple.
Great read. Excellent plot that kept my interest....was able to read it in one cold, rainy afternoon/evening. A good, clean British mystery just the way I like them. Miss Silver rocks!
