A rather meh installment

Danger Point - Patricia Wentworth

Not my favorite Miss Silver. The main character, Lisle Jerningham, has all of the personality and vitality of an overcooked noodle and Miss Silver hardly enters the story at all.

 

I do love the way that Miss Silver apparently governessed for every member of British law enforcement.

 

In the Balance was better than Grey Mask, but I preferred Lonesome Road, and this one recycled many of the same plot points. It was not good to be a young woman in control over a large fortune in Miss Silver's world. 

 

The moral to the story: don't make a will. Or make a will leaving your entire fortune to the local pet rescue, so your family has an incentive to keep you alive.
