PICTURE MISS SEETON.
Edition: First printing.
London: Geoffrey Bles, (1968) dj. Hardcover first edition - First novel by this English actor, and the first in the still popular Miss Seeton series. "When we are first introduced to Miss Seeton, she is an accident-prone middle-aged arts teacher at private school in London. She recently inherited the Sweetbriars cottage in Plummergen, Kent, which she uses as a getaway from the bustling life in London. With her exceptional skills at drawing sketches that portend or predict the future and the past, she often gets embroiled in mayhem, drugs, and murder. Nonetheless, she only has her umbrella as a tool and weapon for any emergencies, though she is quite the match for anyone that would take her on. Alongside Mrs. Seeton is Scotland Yards Superintendent Delphick, who has been nicknamed the Oracle, and his sidekick Detective Sergeant Bob Ranger." Miss Seeton is the universal maiden aunt, a believer in high standards - and a slightly younger and more unconventional version of Miss Marple, and the books as a whole are more satiric and darker than one would expect. 224 pp. Dust jacket design by Kaye Bellman. ISBN: 0-713802103.
