Mystery Monday Extra: Danger Point

(aka: In the Balance)
(Miss. Silver: #4)

Written by Patricia Wentworth
1941, 225 Pages
Genre: mystery, detective

Rating: ★★★★

Miss. Silver is on the train returning from her holiday with her niece when a young lady stumbles into her compartment. Right away she can tell the young girl is afraid of something and tries to get her to open up. The young woman, Lisle overheard some women gossiping about her husband. His wealthy first wife's death may have not have been accident and now that his estate is in jeopardy again will Lisle be next?

A predictable but engaging mystery. Like in Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca the new bride is frightened into thinking her husband is the killer of his first wife. And, also like in Rebecca you will be at the edge of your seat wondering if the husband is misunderstood or a monster.
