Part of the Miss Silver Series Series

Vanishing Point Synopsis

Nothing much ever seemed to happen in the sleepy village of Hazel Green apart from the occasional tea-party, spiced with local gossip. Until Maggie Bell went out one evening for a breath of fresh air and never came back. Could Maggie's disappearance be linked to security leaks at the nearby Air Ministry? Or is a sinister scheme being hatched closer to home? Miss Silver is called in to solve the mystery just as a second person goes missing . . .

Vanishing Point Press Reviews

Patricia Wentworth has created a great detective in Miss Silver, the little old lady who nobody notices, but who in turn notices everything * Paula Gosling * 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 * Miss Silver is marvellous * Daily Mail * I like Wentworth very much - she captures the mores of pre-war middle class England perfectly, and she writes rather better than Christie. They are romantic cosies, of course, but with an edge to them and an intelligence to the writing that has lasted. * Andrew Taylor * Praise for Patricia Wentworth:
