Miss Silver #9

Anne Jocelyn came back from the dead. Her husband Philip says he carried her off the beach at Breton, shot in the head by a German bullet, and he buried her in Holt churchyard. Now with the war almost over, the bombing stopped, her return explodes the quiet life at Jocelyn's Holt. She wants her husband and her fortune back, and she'll get them ... if she is really Anne Jocelyn. Miss Nellie Collins knows something about that, and now Nellie Collins is dead.

Maud Silver, Private Enquiry Agent

She is everyone's favorite spinster-detective. From her Edwardian hairstyle to her beaded shoes, she is the very model of governess, which indeed she once was. Now she has taken on the much more challenging occupation of private enquiry agent. Armed with stubborn British common sense and an iron will to succeed, she is one of the best at tracking murder, as memorable as the finest creations of Agatha Christie.

This copy is an American version, and therefore I had to resist the temptation to write 'favourite' instead of 'favorite'... The original book was printed in Britain as The Traveller Returns in 1945.

I'm such a slow reader in English, but this type of mysteries are my favourites (hah! favo-u-rites!) and I adore stories this old so I guess I have to keep this in my ever growing TBR pile. I've had one Miss Silver Mystery earlier and that I released without reading. It was number 22 in this series of 32 novels she wrote between 1928 and 1961.
