Three cozy mysteries in the “timelessly charming” historical series featuring a retired English governess who finds a second calling as a detective (Charlotte MacLeod). Meet Miss Maud Silver, a retired governess and “little old lady who nobody notices, but who in turn notices everything” (Paula Gosling, author of the Jack Stryker mystery series). Dark Threat: Judy Elliot leaves war-torn London for a job as a maid in the peaceful countryside. But something’s not right at the house known as Pilgrim’s Rest. Fortunately Miss Silver is skilled at shedding light on deadly secrets . . . Latter End: Wealthy Mrs. Lois Latter thinks she has everything, but that doesn’t stop someone from giving her poison. And with the late matron’s long list of enemies, Miss Silver has her work cut out for her . . . Wicked Uncle: Gregory Porlock didn’t become one of Britain’s most powerful men by following the rules. But when he’s found with a knife in his back, the game is over. Now Miss Maud Silver must deduce who’s playing dirty.

A classic mystery novel from one of the mistresses of the genre. Things had never been quite the same at Latter End since Lois had taken over. Suddenly life seemed to be an endless succession of bitter family rows which Lois, needless to say, invariably won. More than one person at Latter End found themselves stretched to the limit by Lois and her bullying, and it was only a matter of time before somebody snapped. It was unthinkable of course . . . but if anyone ever murdered Lois Latter, it would be very embarrassing to discover just how many people might have wished her dead.
