Product Description:

New Year's Eve 1940, and departing from family tradition, James Paradine makes a speech. Valuable documents have disappeared and a member of the family is responsible. The culprit is given the ultimatum to confess and return the papers by midnight. A few minutes after twelve James is dead.

Review:

Miss Silver has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot (Manchester Evening News)

Wentworth is a first-rate storyteller (Daily Telegraph)

Miss Silver is marvellous (Daily Mail)

. . . some of the best examples of the British country-house murder mystery (Alfred Hitchcock Magazine)

You can't go wrong with Miss Maud Silver. (Observer)
