Who is this Grey Mask? And what hold does he have over Margaret Langton? And who is trying to kill the young girl in Margaret’s charge? Will Charles Moray find the answers or will he turn to Miss Silver to discover the truth.
The start of the Miss Maud Silver mysteries. It would take Ms Wentworth another 10 years to pen the next mystery in this series ‘The Case is Closed’, but after that a new Miss Silver mystery would appear most years right up to her death.
These books are light, romantic mysteries, with a main character who as Inspector Frank Abbott is wont to say ‘can look through a shop window, and see all that is going on…even in the very back.’
If you like Miss Jane Marple…you will love Miss Maud Silver!
After Charles was jilted at the altar by Margaret, he discovers that she is mixed up in a vicious kidnapping plot masterminded by a sinister figure in a grey mask. Charles turns to Miss Silver to uncover the strange truth behind Margaret’s complicity, and the identity of the terrifying and mysterious individual behind the grey mask.
