Eternity RingA good average Miss Silver Mystery Mary Stokes discovers a dead body in Dead Man s Copse one evening but when she returns with a police officer it is no longer there Miss Silver becomes involved by this event and is determined to get to the bottom of itShe does of course in the nick of time I have so many books in my house I probably have over 700 unread mysteries yet sometimes it is difficult to now what to read and I just grab anything I like getting through the unread mysteries because then I can give Them Away Which Is away which is ultimate goal for most of the books in the house Anyway I read this book in desperation I say it like that because I already new that I didn t like Wentworth s Miss Silver But over the years various people have said to me how much they like her and I am doing a monograph on cozies and she Pip Sueak Saves the Day Medici Books for Children kind of fits so I thought maybe I m wrong Maybe they are terrific They aren t Her stupid little cough still grates I hate hernitting I don t think she is incredibly clever She isn t as interesting as Miss Marple The only thing I like about the books or a few things she does do fem jep suspense decently though at the same time I hate to say that I thought Cis deserved to be illed a few times for stupidity I also really love seeing little snapshots of England after the war Other than that Miss Wentworth I m done I ve read 3 I didn t like them and I see no reason why That Will Change Frank will change Frank is present when a distraught girl appears claiming to have seen a man dragging the corpse of a young woman The corpse is wearing a very distinctive earring which looks like a diamond eternity ring but the second earring appears to be missing It is not Frank s case and he was second earring appears to be missing It is not Frank s case and he was there are the time because he was staying with his uncle and aunt He is puzzled and asks his friend Miss Silver to come and stay and see if she thinks the girl is lyingWhat follows is an intriguing mystery which may or may not involve Frank s cousin Cicely and her estranged husband Grant Hathaway as well as many of the neighbours It is thanks to Miss Silver that the missing corpse is eventually discovered but not until another murder has taken place and there are even suspects in the frameI think this is one of Patricia Wentworth s best Miss Sliver mysteries featuring as it does her working in harmony with the police and making best use of her ability to fade into the background and be overlooked just when an intelligent listener is needed It is an interesting study in character and motivation written to an extremely high standard and with some excellent dialogue and a very good plot Miss Silver is the one person Frank Abbot looks up to and respects the most even though he often feels like a schoolboy again in her.
