The Gazebo by Patricia Wentworth

First published 1955; cover shown is the 1965 Penguin Books (UK) paperback edition. Cover art by Leif Anisdahl. 239p.

'Nicholas Carey' were the last two words Mrs Graham uttered in the presence of her murderer. At first the evidence seemed conclusive - especially as the man in question admitted he was on the scene of the crime only a few minutes before. But there are other suspects.

Why, for instance, had Sid Blaunt and Fred Worple been so keen to buy the Graham's house? Why did Ella Harrison try to establish an alibi? It needs Miss Silver to unravel it all, and luckily she's there to see justice done.
