Poison in the Pen. Patricia Wentworth.

Poison in the Pen. MISS SILVER LOOKED across the tea-tray a good deal in the manner of the affectionate aunt who entertains a deserving nephew, but the young man who leaned forward to take the cup of tea which she had just poured out for him was not really related to her in any way. He was, in fact, Detective Inspector Frank Abbott of Scotland Yard, enjoying a Sunday afternoon off duty and very much at his ease.

This is a Wentworth description of Maud Silver's drawing room' which sums up perfectly what her mysteries are like. In this story both March and Abbott have their role. The mystery centers on poison pen letters and there is a lot of discussion as to what sort of person would write them. There is no real explanation as to why Jason, the love interest, left. He does not explain it even to Valentine, the girl he left.

Wentworth Patricia - скачать бесплатно все книги автора. As with other Miss Silver mysteries, the story relies on character development. Nadia May reads clearly and distinguishes individuals well; her British voice is ideal for this genteel period thriller (1951). When a mysterious suicide follows an outbreak of poison pen letters in the quiet village of Tilling Green, Detective Inspector Frank Abbott of Scotland Yard dispatches Miss Silver to investigate.

The Miss Waynes occasionally took in a paying guest. Horrid for them all having this poison-pen business. And just as that charming girl at the Manor is getting married!

The Miss Waynes occasionally took in a paying guest. One of them was a Miss Cutler, now living in Chiswick. It could be arranged for you to meet her in a casual manner, after which it would be child’s play to induce her to recommend a country lodging. In the course of her professional career Miss Silver had frequently been obliged to embark upon a course of action to which as a private gentlewoman she would not have committed herself. She began to consider the desirability of making Miss Cutler’s acquaintance. And just as that charming girl at the Manor is getting married!

Every gossip in the little village of Tilling Green has something to tell Miss Silver. There's a poison pen letter writer at work in Tilling Green. Everyone has theories about that. And then there are the suicides by young women driven to it by the filthy letters.

Miss Silver has been deputized by Scotland Yard to lodge in the village and pick up gossip. Patricia Wentworth does a good job of depicting how gossip spreads among neighbors, relatives and servants. Miss Silver soon knows as much about it as anyone. Enough to suspect the suicides were really murder.

To add to the nasty brew of village gossip, there are scandals up at the Manor House -- a young wife bored with country living and probably misbehaving; a young heiress looking miserable on the eve of her wedding...

Poison in the Pen was first published in 1957. Agatha Christie had already treated the subject of poison pen letters quite well in 1942 in The Moving Finger. But Poison in the Pen is also well done with a delicious mix of village characters. Miss Silver is in top form and does a prodigious amount of knitting as she picks up the tidbits that unmask the twisted perpetrator of the letters and the murders.

In the 28th Miss Silver mystery (of 32), the only noticeable difference is the original crime. I am reading the books in order, except for the second, and poison pen letters haven't featured in any of them. The bare bones of this novel, as in all of them, is a country house in a small town, lots of people with secrets, at least one young couple with their happy-ever-after requiring some work, and Miss Maud Silver, a retired governess who hasn't aged since 1928 when the series began (this book was written in 1955). A lot of the plot devices have been recycled, though the author does her best to give them differences. A frail child, a second marriage, an unwilling bride-to-be, various people living off the largesse of an heir or heiress, a deranged villain, gossiping villagers and household help, a disappearance and sudden reappearance...all of these have featured in any number of other books in the series. The writing style is cozy mid-century, clean enough for readers of any age, completely lacking in technology, and defaulting to old-fashioned virtues. By now, I'm able to tell who the villain is from the beginning, but it doesn't spoil my enjoyment of the tales. This isn't the best of the series, but it isn't bad. The author was winding down her career at this point. There are only four more books in the series, which ended in the year of her death, 1961. If you've never read a Miss Silver mystery, I'd recommend "Vanishing Point" as a starting point.

"Strange stories had been stammered out in this quiet room and in the upshot virtue had been vindicated, crime exposed, and justice done in the manner of the Victorian tract…" This is a Wentworth description of Maud Silver's drawing room' which sums up perfectly what her mysteries are like.
In this story both March and Abbott have their role. The mystery centers on poison pen letters and there is a lot of discussion as to what sort of person would write them.
There is no real explanation as to why Jason, the love interest, left. He does not explain it even to Valentine, the girl he left. Nevertheless, the village life is there. I love the continuity of Maud Silver interacting with Abbott and March and the story is good.

The town has had a spate of anonymous nasty letters accusing people of untrue things or bringing their attention to others' wrong-doings. In addition, by the time the novel is over several people have died or were they murdered? Miss Silver is a older single woman who has a detective practice after being a school teacher for years. She is able to insinuate herself into the town as a paying guest at another woman's cottage. She helps her friend and previous student Frank Abbott of the Yard. She has excellent judgment regarding people and their motives. Readers can compare her to Miss Marple and be correct. There are differences, however. I enjoyed the descriptions of people and the town from the past and the slow pace of everyone's lives. There are several suspects and a romance and very British class divisions from the 1st half of the 20th century. It is a steady paced book and worth a couple afternoon's time. If you want gore and active mayhem, however, this is not for you.

I love Patricia Wentworth, and I try to get the paperback copies as much as possible--I just like having a good book in hand--but I got a "deal" on the kindle edition and was going on a plane trip anyway. This was a great mystery. I did not catch the killer's identity until the very end, when Miss Silver got it, and it wasn't for lack of clues. Just clever misdirection. And then there were a couple of further twists after she figured it out, too. Great book, I know I'll read it again.

Miss Silver is a big favorite. One immediately enters a by-gone world that offers certain comforts and
certainties we miss now. One does wonder, though, if there are still nasty letter writers around in this
age of instant-everything! Miss Silver always guides the unhappy characters to a happy ending,
and this is a reliable pleasure.

I literally could not put this book down. It is classic small village with aging sleuth. So may suspects and Miss Silver always gets her man or woman. I love it and I am sure you will also.
Miss Silver has become one of my favorite characters. I enjoy this series
