Reader's note

Patricia Wentworth writings are always a classy and welcome addition to any bookshelf. Greenings is a quiet English village, its life revolving round the Church, the big house and Mrs Alexander’s general shop. All seems as peaceful and innocent as the baby’s pink west which Miss Maud Silver, a guest at the Vicarage, is knitting for her niece. And the watersplash beside the stepping stones is hardly two feet deep. Of course a man might drown in it were drunk. But Miss Silver is not satisfied. She is also suspicious of the Friday evenings when the work-party meets at the Vicarage. Against a background of gossip and cats and afternoon tea a sinister mystery builds up, involving a vanished heir and a hypothetical will. But Miss Silver, slipping out unostentatiously in her ladylike coat and sensible shoes, has a plan… The watersplash is as good as anything Patricia Wentworth has written and the many admirers of the Miss Silver mysteries know how good that is. The perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and rare, vintage books.
