Review by Poodlerat
When Lewis Brading, a man obsessed with his collection of famous jewels (all with sinister associations with scandal and murder), is found dead, Miss Silver is called in. She had rejected a case from Mr. Brading only weeks before, but this time she takes up the case.Patricia Wentworth’s Miss Silver mysteries tend to be of much the same type and quality: a sympathetic romantic pair, some unpleasant friends and relations of the deceased, and a very unpleasant murderer or two. The Brading Collection is no exception. There’s nothing remotely challenging in it, just a cozy British mystery with a hint of romance: fluffy comfort reading.
