In this classic British mystery starring a sleuth who "has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot," Miss Silver investigates a case of marital murder (Manchester Evening News). Lois has always dreamed of being a Latter. The Latter brothers are both so attractive—nearly as handsome as their stately manor, Latter End. After she spoils her relationship with one brother, Lois succeeds with the other, winning his heart with her good looks and a sizeable fortune from her first marriage. But even after they've wed, she never quite fits in with the family. Still, she hardly expects them to kill her. When the psychic Memnon warns her of murder by poison, Lois laughs it off and so does everyone else, but then, like clockwork, she's dead. The weapon? Poison, of course. Only the brilliant governess-turned-detective Miss Maud Silver can solve this tantalizing case complicated by the bitterness that infests Latter End.
