The Alington Inheritance Reviews

I always thought them rather better than 'Miss Marple' and certainly very well written. * Mary Stewart *
Miss Wentworth's plot is ingenious, her characterization acute, her solution satisfying * Scotsman *
Miss Wentworth is a first-rate storyteller * Daily Telegraph *
Miss Silver has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot * Manchester Evening News *
You can't go wrong with Miss Maud Silver. * Observer *
