Review by

This was a bit unusual for a Miss Silver mystery, in that it was very near the end of the book before a crime was even discovered; most of the book is spent in the set-up. Unfortunately, this left very little time for a display of Miss Silver’s talent, one of the things I like best about the books. I still enjoyed <em>The Benevent Treasure</em> quite a bit, though.
