About the Author
Patricia Wentworth was born Dora Amy Elles in India in 1877 (not 1878 as has sometimes been stated). She was first educated privately in India, and later at Blackheath School for Girls. Her first husband was George Dillon, with whom she had her only child, a daughter. She also had two stepsons from her first marriage, one of whom died in the Somme during World War I. Her first novel was published in 1910, but it wasn't until the 1920's that she embarked on her long career as a writer of mysteries. Her most famous creation was Miss Maud Silver, who appeared in 32 novels, though there were a further 33 full-length mysteries not featuring Miss Silver-the entire run of these is now reissued by Dean Street Press. Patricia Wentworth died in 1961. She is recognized today as one of the pre-eminent exponents of the classic British golden age mystery novel. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Brilliant!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 July 2016
This is the best mystery story I've ever read! I couldn't put it down. I actually preferred it to Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver stories ( I have all of these on cd). I am now reading my second Golden Age Mystery and feel that I've discovered a treasure trove. "Run" is of its time but if you like golden oldies you'll enjoy this one.

A good old fashioned 1930's mysteryReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 September 2019
I think this is one of her best books, it started with the mystery straightaway and kept my interest throughout with a clever plot, interesting characters and humour.
Fairly typicalReviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 March 2020
A bit better than the previous couple of novels with quite an innovative story line
Wonderful vintage thriller!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 December 2017
Loved every minute. Great escapism. Patricia Wentworth does it again.....we have love, murder, betrayal and suspense. I’m so glad I’ve discovered these older books by Ms Wentworth.
