The Silver Mask

Bill Ayers from Hugh Walpole

Published by Cyberpress

2 Male 5 Female

A period comedy-thriller adapted from a story by Hugh Walpole

It's Christmas, 1932

Sonia Herries - a spinster in her 60s - lives in central London

Some say she 'prefers her own company' or 'got jilted' or 'got a fortune in art'

Her life-long friend Amy Weston 'dances til three - on tables, no less', in her version of the Black Bottom

Sonia's maid, Rose, has become a companion

Sonia's kindness and love of art attract an enigmatic man with insidious relatives and ill-intent

These three women are not prepared for products of the 1930s depression to come calling
