Miss Silver series – featured in 32 novels by British novelist Patricia Wentworth.
Wentworth wrote a series of 32 crime novels in the classic whodunit style, featuring Miss Maud Silver, a retired governess and teacher who becomes a professional private detective, in London, England. Miss Silver works closely with Scotland Yard, especially Inspector Frank Abbott, and is fond of quoting the poet Tennyson. She sometimes compared to Jane Marple, the elderly detective created by Agatha Christie.
“Miss Silver is well known in the better circles of society, and she finds entree to the troubled households of the upper classes with little difficulty. In most of Miss Silver’s cases there is a young couple whose romance seems ill fated because of the murder to be solved, but in Miss Silver’s competent hands the case is solved, the young couple are exonerated, and all is right in this very traditional world.”
