Fiction & Literature; Classic crime
Retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard Stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrella, she is at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection. This popular series was created by Heron Carvic; and continued after his death first by Hampton Charles, and later by Hamilton Crane. When a flood of perfectly faked banknotes hits the market, retired art teacher Miss Emily Seeton, Scotland Yard's famed 'MissEss', is chosen to investigate a respected Geneva bank. Somehow, the forger is also mixed up in the theft of valuable paintings, so it's 'set an artist to catch an artist'. But Miss S. is new to air travel - surely the names Geneva and 'Genova' must be the same place? Bamboozling both the crooks and the police who vainly try to keep tabs on her, innocently humming the fraudsters' musical password, she trips gaily along the dangerous trail. Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella! AUTHOR: Heron Carvic (1913-1980) was an actor and writer, most recognisable today for his voice portrayal of the character Gandalf in the first BBC Radio broadcast version of The Hobbit. He started writing the Miss Seeton novels in the 1960s, after using her in a short story. He later recalled that Miss Seeton upped and demanded a book .

Reviews for Miss Seeton Sings (#4 Miss Seeton)

This is not so much black comedy as black-currant comedy . . . You can't stop reading. Or laughing. * The Sun * A most beguiling protagonist! * New York Times * Light, zany, this novel is peopled by several genuine human beings you hate to see go. * Houston Post * For those who like a bit of fun in their mystery stories a new Miss Seeton yarn is always welcome. Heron Carvic once more provides his readers with a host of chuckles while at the same time assuring plenty of action. * Lewiston Journal * This is one of the best yet. * Times, New Milford, Ct. *
