Description
In this classic British mystery, a revised will, a troubled upper-class marriage, and a crazed witness shake up 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's almost able to find relief in her resignation. But when new evidence suggests her husband may be innocent after all, she hires a professional--Miss Maud Silver--to clear his name. It begins with a chance encounter on a busy train, when a friend of Marion's 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 have information that could set Marion's husband free. But who is he, and where has he gone? To find out, demure governess-turned-detective Miss Silver must track him down before becoming a victim herself. In a series that's 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 ).
