Read full description of the books:
Detective Sergeant Frank Abbott, a reoccurring character who is a good friend of Miss Silver’s meets up with Judy - a lady he had been fond of but lost touch with a year before. She is about to take a position as a housekeeper in the village Frank grew up in as she has in her care, her young orphaned niece and it is not easy to find a job that will accommodate a 4 year old child.
Frank doesn’t want her to go to the house known as Pilgrim’s Rest because there have been some strange things happen there over the previous 3 years and he doesn’t want Judy and Penny exposed to possible danger.
Frank’s boyhood friend Roger Pilgrim goes to see Miss Silver because he is convinced that someone is trying to kill him. Miss Silver ventures off to Pilgrim's Rest for a visit as “an old school acquaintance” of one of the two maiden aunts who live there.
And what a story it is that takes off from there! This is some of the best storytelling and writing that Patricia Wentworth has done in the Miss Silver series so far. This book is exciting, intriguing, and comes complete with a red herring or two . . . or, are they?
I loved this story, and the primary little dollop of romance in the book takes place between a couple who are in their early 40’s – both of them strong and interesting characters. This was a very satisfying read and has me looking forward to #11 with great anticipation.

Read information about the authorPatricia Wentworth--born Dora Amy Elles--was a British crime fiction writer.
She was educated privately and at Blackheath High School in London. After the death of her first husband, George F. Dillon, in 1906, she settled in Camberley, Surrey. She married George Oliver Turnbull in 1920 and they had one daughter.
She wrote a series of 32 classic-style whodunnits featuring Miss Silver, the first of which was published in 1928, and the last in 1961, the year of her death.
Miss Silver, a retired governess-turned private detective, is sometimes compared to Jane Marple, the elderly detective created by Agatha Christie. She works closely with Scotland Yard, especially Inspector Frank Abbott and is fond of quoting the poet Tennyson.
Wentworth also wrote 34 books outside of that series.
