|Publisher:||Hodder & Stoughton|
Lindsay Trevor was intrigued by Mr. Smith's strange offer, but the fact that he was to be married the following Saturday led him to decline it. But he changed his mind when he suddenly received a letter from his fiancee cancelling the wedding plans. Soon he was plunged into a dangerous mission involving the fates of entire countries and the lives of eminent men, and Marian, his erstwhile fiancee, seemed to be mixed up in it, too.

Author Bio for Elles, Dora Amy
Dora Amy Elles (November 10, 1878 - January 28, 1961) wrote under the pen name of Patricia Wentworth. She was a British crime writer, best known for her Miss Silver Mysteries, though she also wrote romantic novels. Miss Silver is frequently compared to Agatha Christie's Jane Marple, though Patricia Wentworth's first Miss Silver novel pre-dated Agatha Christie's first Miss Marple novel by two years, and may well have inspired Agatha Christie.
In Marion Shaw & Sabine Vanacker's book Reflecting on Miss Marple, they said: "while Miss Marple may receive ten times the attention as Miss Silver, ... the woefully neglected Miss Silver is the real deal - a professional investigator and a stand-up woman, a true forerunner of all future female private eyes."
