A young governess named Anna Ball is missing, and her friend Thomasina Elliot hires Miss Silver to investigate. Miss Silver assumes the position left vacant by Anna, tending to the three Craddock children at Deepe House in Deep End in Lincolnshire. The children's stepfather, Mr. Craddock, is an astrologer and herbalist; his wife is frail and unhealthy. Miss Silver pursues murder among a colony of would-be artists and crystal-gazers, where the atmosphere is noticeably sinister. The odd inhabitants include the flute-like Augustus Remington, who does exquisite needlework; John Robinson, a bird-watcher; two spinster sisters in smocks; and the mahogany-haired Miranda, who claims to be psychic. As Miss Silver conducts her search for Anna and the solution to her mysterious disappearance, the suspense and terror mount. Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver-always unruffled, serene, and wise-epitomizes the civilized charm of British mystery. It is perhaps fitting that her long-time devotion to Tennyson provides one of the major clues in this perplexing case.
A MUST for any Mystery Fan or Collector and especially hard to find in a LARGE PRINT edition for easy reading!
