The Coldstone

(1930)
A novel by

 
 
She had trembled. She had laughed her shaky little laugh. And she had vanished into thin air.

And the door was locked on the inside

When young Anthony Colstone inherits Stonegate from his grandfather's cousin, he hardly expects to be haunted by death. Why had Sir Jervis wanted him to promise never to move the ancient megalithic stones and why did no one even know how many there were? Surely old Susan Bowyer knows - she is nearly one hundred and she knows everything about the village. And perhaps her great-granddaughter, Susan, knows something, at one moment a shy village maid, the next a sophisticated young woman.

Then one night a wall in the queer old library moves and Anthony finds himself on the trail of a mystery exceeding his wildest imagining. Mystery, adventure, and romance combine in Patricia Wentworth's most sparkling manner.

The Coldstone was originally published in 1930. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

"When I pick up a book by Patricia Wentworth I think, now to enjoy myself - and I always do." Mary Dell, Daily Mirror
