    Gregory Porlock’s party was a very successful one - from Gregory’s point of view. He was in the highest of spirits, and the fact that his guests were obviously not in a party mood only added to his enjoyment. He knew they all had good reason to fear and dislike him, and it amused him to play the part of the genial host, and to watch each of his visitors trying to act the part of a gay and carefree guest for the benefit of all the others. Gregory never knew that one of his visitors played two roles that evening, that someone doubled the part of guest and murderer, for in that drama Gregory Porlock was cast for a different role.

    Constance says: "Fantastic, smart classic British mystery!"

    Story

    After just having listened to a couple of adrenaline provoking titles, I really wanted to hyper down. So I turned to the ever delightful and calming Miss Silver, as read by the delightful and calming Diana Bishop.

    Decades come and go, but Miss Silver does not change. She is the ultimate "stealth sleuth"--a highly observant, intelligent, and commanding detective she appears to be only what she, in fact, is--a retired governess.

    In this case, a blackmailing rotter convenes a house party of victims, and guess who ends up murdered? Miss Silver, working with Scotland Yard, figures it all out. Yes, these books are comedic in that they usually end with the engagement of the ingenue to the young male lead, but they are not silly or farcical. And the steady, thoughtful presence of Miss Silver in the background is very, very reassuring.
