Book Description

His first wife died suddenly—and his wealthy new bride may be about to meet a similar fate . . .

Former schoolteacher Miss Maud Silver is making her way back to London when, with a violent shudder of the train, a young woman is thrust into her compartment. She is beautiful, well dressed, newly married, and wealthy—which may be about to get her killed.

In a state of shock, Lisle Jerningham explains that she fled her home in a hurry when she overheard a sinister conversation through the bushes. Her new husband's first wife died in an apparent accident, and the resultant infusion of cash saved his family home. Now, he is broke again—and trying to engineer a second convenient mishap. Miss Silver is unsure whether the drama is real or a figment of Lisle's imagination—but if this frightened young lady is a target for murder, the killer will have to deal with the governess-turned-sleuth first.
