9780060923617: Ladies' Bane (A Miss Silver Mystery)

Ladies' Bane - it was a curious name for a house. But visiting it for the first time Ione found it a curious house. Curious, and rather frightening. They said in the village that anyone who was its mistress would lose the thing she cared for most. And its present mistress was Allegra - Ione's sister. They had not met for two years. Appointments had been made but not kept. Visits had been postponed time and time again. There had been excuse after excuse. And then, suddenly Ione found herself not only invited but positively urged to come. To begin with she had been puzzled. But soon she was not only worried, but badly, deeply scared... Thank heavens Miss Silver was in town.

About the Author:

Patricia Wentworth (1878 1961) was one of the masters of classic English mystery writing. Born in India as Dora Amy Elles, she began writing after the death of her first husband, publishing her first novel in 1910. In the 1920s, she introduced the character who would make her famous: Miss Maud Silver, the former governess whose stout figure, fondness for Tennyson, and passion for knitting served to disguise a keen intellect. Along with Agatha Christie s Miss Marple, Miss Silver is the definitive embodiment of the English style of cozy mysteries.
Diana Bishop is an AudioFile Earphones Award-winning narrator who has worked extensively in theater, including seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company and also for the Arts Council of Great Britain and the British Council. She has twice been a member of the BBC's Radio Drama Company and has made many television appearances. She is also a prizewinning poet and a writer of short stories and plays for theater and radio.
