The usual detectives arrive from Scotland Yard to assist the locals: the elegant young Sergeant Frank Abbott and his plebian superior. Miss Silver is called in by a young lady who innocently made one of the dinner party. Dorinda is an attractive, cheerful, likable character, despite her not very appealing name. Dorinda has a handsome distant cousin who is very protective of her. There’s romance in the air, as well as fear.
Porlock, besides being a blackmailer, has been a bad husband and a wicked uncle in his past. Several of the characters have a questionable past.
I particularly liked the butler, who turns out to have an agenda of his own and a great talent for eavesdropping.
It's always fun to hear about Miss Silver's outmoded Victorian outfits and watch her calmly knitting as tensions build on all sides. She not only gently directs the police to the correct solution of the murder case; she also cleverly exposes another piece of knavery in the course of the story.
First published in 1947, Wicked Uncle is enjoyable, but not my favorite Miss Silver mystery.
