Alan Field was charming, handsome, and ruthless He would have preferred that last word to be rich, but he was murdered in the midst of his latest attempt to achieve wealth without working Blackmail was, he thought, much easier Not one but two ex fiancees were in the area, one of them the now married woman he left at the church when he fled to South America Fortunately, Miss Maud Silver is at a nearby boarding house, taking a short holiday with her niece Only she can put the pieces together Alan Field was charming, handsome, and ruthless He would have preferred that last word to be rich, but he was murdered in the midst of his latest attempt to achieve wealth without working Blackmail was, he thought, much easier Not one but two ex fiancees were in the area, one of them the now married woman he left at the church when he fled to South America Fortunately, Miss Maud Silver is at a nearby boarding house, taking a short holiday with her niece Only she can put the pieces together and finger an unsuspected murderer before there s a third tragedy I thought this was a pretty average Miss Silver outing Not the most intriguing of plots or selection of characters and it lacked some of the sparkle of the other books in the series. A very good older whodunnit. Giving this 4 stars because I like the style and the period If you ve read all the Miss Marples, you could do worse than starting on Miss Silver Clever characterization, slightly severe detective Silver , a bit of police procedure, and no desultory, obligatory sex scenes Seriously If I wanted to read sex, I read a book about sex So many novels and films seem to have a checklist and pointless sex which lends itself to neither character or plot advancement is on it Along with unnecessa Giving this 4 stars because I like the style and the period If you ve read all the Miss Marples, you could do worse than starting on Miss Silver Clever characterization, slightly severe detective Silver , a bit of police procedure, and no desultory, obligatory sex scenes Seriously If I wanted to read sex, I read a book about sex So many novels and films seem to have a checklist and pointless sex which lends itself to neither character or plot advancement is on it Along with unnecessary physical description of characters If being a tall blonde in designer shoes is IMPORTANT to the plot, fine Tell me If it isn t, it s just tedious I can t count the ARCs I ve tossed back because I ve had to read about what the protagonist looks like wears eats drives on the first page or two James And Carmona Hardwick Are Spending The Summer Playing Host To Numerous Friends And Relatives In An Old Hardwick Family Residence By The Sea The Arrival Of Alan Field, A Devastatingly Handsome Though Shady Figure From Carmona S Past, Destroys The Holiday Atmosphere In The Ugly Old House And Replaces It With Mounting Tension, Culminating In Murder Fortunately For The Hardwicks And Their Guests, Miss Silver Is Present To Unravel The Secrets From The Past Secrets The Killer Will Stop At Nothing To Keep Hidden Just arrived from Finland through BM.A story where there are too many suspects of a murder crime, which calls for revenge, betrayal and blackmail This is the 23rd book of Miss Silver series and reminds me the famous detective women created by Dame Christie Miss Marple These old ladies, who nobody notices, are the key personages who are able to solve very entangled murder mysteries. Enjoyed again in 2019.Six people have very strong motives to murder a rotter who has come back into their lives after jilting his fianc e and disappearing for three years He needs money, and blackmail is his method Luckily Miss Silver is staying at a boarding house close to the mansion where most of the cast are living visiting.A good average Patricia Wentworth whodunnit.
