    The first of the classic mysteries featuring governess-turned-detective Miss Silver, who investigates a deadly conspiratorial ring. Charles Moray has come home to England to collect his inheritance. After four years wandering the jungles of India and South America, the hardy young man returns to the manor of his birth, where generations of Morays have lived and died. Strangely, he finds the house unlocked, and sees a light on in one of its abandoned rooms. Eavesdropping, he learns of a conspiracy to commit a fearsome crime.

    What did you love best about Grey Mask?

    The story was so good. I didn't want to put it down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    She kept me guessing until the very end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would give away a surprise but the best scene is near the end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    If you can only read one of Ms. Wentworth's books, which is a very sad predicament indeed, but if only one, read this one. Her books are all on a high level of story, characters and flow. Someone who can write so many great mysteries of this type is amazing. Not since Christie herself I shouldn't wonder.

    Nothing much ever seemed to happen in the sleepy village of Hazel Green apart from the occasional tea party, spiced with local gossip. Until Maggie Bell went out one evening for a breath of fresh air and never came back. Could Maggie's disappearance be linked to security leaks at the nearby Air Ministry? Or is a sinister scheme being hatched closer to home? Miss Silver is called in to solve the mystery, just as a second person goes missing....

    What made the experience of listening to Vanishing Point the most enjoyable?

    I have read most of Ms. Wentworth's books and can say with certainty this is one of her best. I would be hard pressed to say which one is the very best. This story is everything you want for a cozy mystery ... great characters, village life in England, the wicked Aunt, love intrigue and surprises as well. And Ms. Silver in her edgiest sleuthing. Don't miss this one.
