Publisher's Summary

Miss Silver joins a friend from Scotland Yard to investigate a suspicious suicide.

Frank Abbott’s vacations never last very long, and his trip to Field End is no exception. He has hardly enjoyed a moment of Jonathan Field’s hospitality before tragedy strikes. A niece ventures into old Jonathan’s study at night to ask him a question, and finds him stone cold with a revolver by his hand. An obvious suicide, it seems, but Inspector Abbott is not so sure.

He asks his friend Maud Silver, the brilliant detective, for assistance. She agrees it must be murder. But who is the killer? Assisting their investigation is the dead man’s strange habit of fingerprinting all who come to visit. But there are fingerprints all over the house, and solving this murder will require Miss Silver’s particularly delicate touch.

Fairly Predictable but Still Well Done

Story like a cozy Sherlock Holmes. Villains fairly obvious but the story is full and complete, the characters well rounded out and believable. Satisfying ending. Narrator one of my favorite readers. Took a minute to get into the book since so many characters were introduced at once but past that, fine. Got through in one day. Not life changing but kept my mind busy at work and I didn’t tire of it.

Clean and appropriate for a teenager too. You may have to explain that “make love” at this time meant flirt or court.

Bit of fun

I enjoyed this although would have liked a narrator who made a little effort in acting the characters. It’s far too long with elongated sentences and over fluffed ideas. Still it’s a bit different from the stories about mothers and their adored children.
