Description:Meade Underwood believes her fiance drowned when their ship was torpedoed in the Atlantic, and is living in quiet grief with her aunt in an old Victorian mansion turned into eight flats. But Meade's story is only one of many; through the course of the book, we learn the stories of nearly all the inhabitants of Vandaleur House, because they all might have a bearing on the murder of top floor Carola Roland. Carola, a former showgirl with a taste for the nastiest revenge she can exact for any type of slight, has gone a step too far with someone...but who? Only Miss Silver can figure that out, if the police will just trust her. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Elles, Dora Amy

Author Image

Dora Amy Elles (November 10, 1878 - January 28, 1961) wrote under the pen name of Patricia Wentworth. She was a British crime writer, best known for her Miss Silver Mysteries, though she also wrote romantic novels. Miss Silver is frequently compared to Agatha Christie's Jane Marple, though Patricia Wentworth's first Miss Silver novel pre-dated Agatha Christie's first Miss Marple novel by two years, and may well have inspired Agatha Christie.

In Marion Shaw & Sabine Vanacker's book Reflecting on Miss Marple, they said: "while Miss Marple may receive ten times the attention as Miss Silver, ... the woefully neglected Miss Silver is the real deal - a professional investigator and a stand-up woman, a true forerunner of all future female private eyes."
