The Case Is Closed | Patricia Wentworth
3 posts | 4 read | 4 to read
In this classic British mystery, a revised will, a troubled upper-class marriage, and a witness who may be mad are keys to a seemingly solved murder case. Marion Grey is growing used to the idea that her husband will never leave prison. After the horrors of a very public trial she is almost able to find relief in her resignation. But when new evidence suggests her husband may be innocent after all, she hires a professionalMiss Silverto clear his name. It begins with a chance encounter on a busy train, when a friend of Marions meets a half-mad woman who claims to know something of the Grey case. With her is a man who disappeared during the trial, and may know something that could see Marions husband set free. Who is he, and where has he gone? To find out, the demure detective Miss Silver must track him down before becoming a victim herself. In a series thats a delightful blend of Downton Abbey and Agatha Christie, retired schoolteacher and sleuth Miss Silver has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot (Manchester Evening News).

Mehso-so

3.5 star silly sexist story. Not a Modern Mystery but it feels like a procedural without cops. The mystery isn't challenging but in the end it's a solid story.

Well, I'm halfway there, and maybe I'll make it, and maybe I won't, but I'm enjoying my reading time this weekend. I recommend Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver mystery series. If you like old fashioned mysteries, this series is the ticket. In this particular book, I liked that the other characters in the book did a lot of the crime solving. It made it interesting. I look forward to reading more of these mysteries. #reademandeatathon

Book Two in the Miss Silver books focuses on a murder case involving a nephew murdering his uncle and getting convicted of the crime. This was a great little mystery & it was fun to pick apart a court case and to see if I could discover who-dun-it (and why). I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
