I've read all Wentworth's book and if you like British mystery, you will reallly enjoy her books. They do not have to be read in order, though it is always most pleasurable to read a series from its beginning. Miss Silver is not overbearing or silly. I'm looking for a photograph of her if you locate one online anywhere...thanks.
