An entertaining classic mystery with a particularly obnoxious murder victim. ( )
  M_Clark | Sep 9, 2020 |
Synopsis: A self-indulgent woman is keeping her daughter in slavery and preventing her from marrying the man of her dreams. Two men are trying to buy their house, but the daughter is resisting this since the house actually belongs to her. Miss Silver steps in to help the daughter and to protect here from charlatans and murders.
Review: Although the treatment of women makes me cringe, the plots are pretty good. In all her books there is a murder and a couple who have some sort of barrier to their marriage. There is always a happy ending. I kept hoping the mother would be killed sooner rather than later. ( )
