The Lonesome Road, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


There were times when Rachel Treherne fervently wished that her beloved father had left his fortune to somebody else, so overburdened did she feel with the administration of her estate. And never more so than now for, although she was surrounded by relatives who depended on her, whom she loved and who must surely love her, there was no doubt in her mind that somebody was trying to kill her.Threatening letters could be ignored, odd tasting chocolates can be rejected but when snakes are left in her bed, Rachel is convinced that someone means here terrible harm.

Her only chance of a future life lay with Miss Silver, and Miss Silver was well on the way to unmasking the murderer when they struck again.

Review by

The Lonesome Road of the title refers to the path in life followed by Rachel Treherne, who inherited a large sum of money from her father and is now concerned because she believes that one of her dependent relatives may be trying to kill her. She calls in Miss Silver to investigate and find out just who is trying to kill her and why. Wentworth builds the tension throughout the book, which ends in a nailbitingly tense denoument. Wonderful.
