Grey Mask (Miss Silver, #1) by Patricia WentworthIf the Miss Silver series of books were ever made into a TV series, and if I were the casting director, I would beg and plead to have Linda Hunt [Henrietta (Hetty) Lange on NCIS: Los Angeles] play the part of Miss Silver. As soon as I first ‘met’ Miss Silver in the book, Hetty Lange popped into my head. Small in stature, wickedly smart, and like a combination of a ninja and Yoda, Miss Silver knows – or can find out – pretty much anything to solve people’s predicaments.
In The Grey Mask there is a very sinister conspiracy occurring. Lives have been lost and other lives are seriously in danger. These people refer to each other by numbers rather than names, which adds to the sinister tone and somehow makes them even more frightening.
Charles happens upon a conversation between the leader of this group (who wears a grey mask) and different “numbers” who come to report to him. He can tell by what he overhears that something is not right and he wants to figure it out but is reluctant to go to the police when he discovers his ex-fiancee is one of those people who are referred to by number rather than by name. She also reports something (although he couldn’t hear what) to The Grey Mask.
There is a touch of romance among the protagonists and a very foolish young woman whose compulsive prattling puts everyone in jeopardy, including herself. Although some of the devices in this novel would be scorned by many hard core mystery fans, I found them refreshing – simply because they “aren’t done” any more.
This fast-paced read was published in 1928 and I am so impressed by Patricia Wentworth’s writing. It is crisp, brisk, and even some of the slang has found its way back to us through all these decades. I loved this story and am looking forward to reading more of the Miss Silver series – with any luck, I will make it through all 32 books before the 100th Anniversary of this, her first!
