When the quiet village of Tilling Green is plagued by an outbreak of poison pen letters, and then a mysterious suicide, Scotland Yard dispatches Miss Silver to investigate. It is through her friend... More > Frank Abbott, of Scotland Yard, that Miss Silver first learns of the anonymous letters.

The Yard sends Abbott to unmask the sinister letter-writer, and he brings Miss Silver along as an undercover agent, masquerading as a tourist as she attempts to stop the next death before it happens.< Less
