Books from the Backlog - The Ivory Dagger

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!  This week's book is a Patricia Wentworth book that I somehow own but haven't read.  

Goodreads:  The Ivory Dagger by Patricia Wentworth

Blurb: When Lila Dryden is discovered standing over the dead body of her irritating fiance with a dagger in her hand, Miss Silver is called in to investigate. What her patience and particular genius uncover is Lila's talent for sleepwalking, the return of her former lover, and the victim's entire staff and circle of acquaintances - all of whom occasionally wished him dead.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I'd like to try to read all the Patricia Wentworth books and this is one I already own!


  1. I never read anything by this author but it does sound like a book I would like.

  2. This sounds good, though I can't help but laugh at the cover. The little figure looks so comically startled! Thanks for the head's up about this book though, it definitely sounds interesting.

  3. With a cover like that (and I like the title too) I would definitely read it!

  4. Hope you enjoy it when you read it!

  5. Not my cup of tea, but I aador the cover! 😁
