The country village of Greenings enjoyed a year-round tranquility which was only occasionally broken by the rattle of cup on saucer at vicarage tea-parties.
But underneath this surface atmosphere lurked a tinder-dry passion which owed its origin to events in the recent past. When the spark was applied - albeit accidentally - the resultant blaze swept hungrily through the village.
It was a situation in which Miss Silver quietly revelled, and in the hunt for a bloodthirsty killer, her well-known astuteness in such matters was taxed to the full.
