A special thank you to my Booklikes buddy Tigus who steered me towards this particular Miss Silver mystery as it is by far the best of the three that I ve read so far The set up for Latter End has been used dozens of times before Lord of the Manor Jimmy Latter marries Lois a jumped up younger woman slash self centered floozy who decides to be the new broom that sweeps out the old She proceeds to throw out the old retainers and impoverished relatives then gets into a blazing row with the husband after he finds her trying to rekindle an old flame with His Cousin Antony Who Is Having None cousin Antony who is having none it realizing that he made a narrow escape indeed and ends up dead of poison in her Turkish coffee The suspect ist is oooooong indeed because everyone had cause to hate Lois Including Jimmy he s just too obtuse and taken with her fragile form to figure it out She was truly awful Not Mrs Boynton from Appointment With Death awful More ike I m so pretty and young and everyone should do exactly what I demand otherwise I will get bored and mope around and behave generally ike a spoiled child Oh and I m the center of the universe so no one else generally ike a spoiled child Oh and I m the center of the universe so no one else needs are important at allFrank Abbott one of Miss Silver s old pupils who is now the younger half of a Scotland Yard detective team shows up with DI Lamb to investigate the crime Jimmy distraught hires Miss Silver to come to the country house and dig around because he is convinced that the Twelve Days of Pleasure lovely Lois committed suicide because she was upset about the fact that he d been giving her the silent treatment for two days after he found her practically mauling cousin Antony in her negligee Did I mention that Jimmy is obtuse Jimmy is obtuseMiss Silver s contribution to the mystery is very Marple esue she uses her knowledge of human nature and her sharp eyes to figure out when the various and sundry occupants aren t telling the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth and then worms it out of them in the nicest way possible I am pretty sure at this point thatike Miss Silver than I ike Miss Marple although continued investigation is reuired to confirmI came up a solution at 70% which turned out to be right on It was a pleasing solution because this is one of those mysteries where the victim is extremely hateable and everyone else actually seems pretty nice if a bit dramatic at times The Miss Silver mysteries do not seem to need to be read in order so I d recommend this one over either of the other two I read I ve now read 19 of the 32 Miss Silver mysteries This is the 11th in the series They are all pleasant cozy reads with different plots and new personalities for Miss Silver to observe and analyze but other than giving a synopsis of the plot it is hard to give a meaningful review of each one It does seem that each one has at east one really disagreeable character that either becomes the victim of murder or turns out to be the perpetrator and in a way that makes them satisfying Patricia Wentworth really knew how to make you dislike certain characters It also seems that often than not blackmail is involved and central to the crime than the other big motivators of greed and hatred I particularly enjoy how the relationship between Maud Silver and the Scotland Yard man Frank Abbot continues to developRecently I viewed new presentations of a couple of Miss Marple stories on PBS Masterpiece Mystery and do think there are some similarities between Miss Marple and Miss Silver It has been many years since I read the Agatha Christie mysteries but I am finding that I really Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye like Miss Silver as a personality better and I think she is much clever and subtle and not so doddering I wonder why PBS has not done these mysteries and if they did who would they get to play Miss Maud Silver Delightfulittle mystery with plenty of stunning banter complex relationships Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France lovely characters perfect pacing and of course our revered perceptress Miss Silver Exactly three stars While the manner in which Miss Silver collects her final clue to the murderer s identity worked in the 1940s it s so utterly incredible today that it d be cause for the MS to be firmly rejected by any publisherThe standard country house mystery a basically unoriginal plot the surprise twist concealed by a veryimp curtain nothing too taxing but nothing out of place in its day and time The strongly moralistic tone of the thing.
