One thought on “Mr. Zero


  1. To my great shame, I never read anything by Patricia Wentworth before, despite being a fan of the Golden Age era crime mysteries By pure chance, Kobo recommended me this very book, and the free preview included an extensive introduction by Curtis Evans it was the Dean Street Press edition I ended by reading the 2016 edition by Open Road Integrated Media, Inc.65 mystery novels, of which 32 featuring Miss Silver I take she s a sort of a younger Miss Marple , and I never considered reading any of t [...]


  2. Oh my gracious, what twaddle A good read for on the train, I expect, and rather formulaic, especially with the daft young woman and the smart young lady and the utterly honorable young man Did Wentworth put these characters in ALL her books, or what Very much of an Interwar English mystery with lots of impractical skullduggery.


  3. Not part of the Miss Silver series, in this standalone novel Wentworth tries her hand at Home Office intrigue Who has stolen vital papers from the Home Secretary s room at a house party Was it one of his secretaries, who also just happens to be his cousin Who shot Sir Francis his lovely airheaded wife, or someone else And a bigger question to my mind would the Home Secretary aka Secretary of State really take vital, confidential papers with him to a house party weekend and just leave them lying [...]


  4. Not my favorite Patricia Wentworth The heroine, Gay Hardwicke, get roped into a situation caused by her dopey cousin Sylvia Gay brings along her friend Algy Somers, an honest and hardworking secretary to the Home Office s much valued Montague Lushington Before you can say bob s my uncle Algy is suspected of being Murder 1.This is not a Miss Silver book but some of the minor characters are fun A nice picture of upper class England in 1938.


  5. A slightly predictable cozy, a fun look at shenanigans among the British upper class in the 40s era The lovely but dimwitted Lady Sylvia Colesborough has gotten herself into trouble, and needs her cousin Gay Hardwicke to help extricate her In her attempts to help Sylvia, Gay accidentally implicates her boyfriend Algy Somers for murder.


  6. I enjoy Patricia Wentworth s predicitability in characterization of refined English ladies being spunky, but the female protagonist was a little too weak and fluttering for me The plot was fun.


  7. I think I actually enjoyed this without Miss Silver Definitely going to try and read the other non miss silver books.
