Book 13 in the Miss Silver series
The post-war English countryside is rocked by murder and a vanishing corpse in this classic mystery perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.
Det. Sgt. Frank Abbot of Scotland Yard thought he’d spend a quiet holiday at his family’s estate near the quaint village of Deeping. Instead, he got intrigue and wild tales of a man dragging a horribly murdered girl into the Deeping Woods. Naturally he calls his friend, the private detective Miss Maud Silver, to take a look.
But things take a turn when no one can locate the body of the rumoured victim, and the only witness suffers a broken neck. One thing is certain, however: The pastoral peace of this town masks something far more sinister.
