SYNOPSIS
Miss Silver's twenty-sixth case delves among the dust and cobwebs of an old family house where two elderly maiden aunts, devoted to their proud ancestry, have very definite plans for the future of the family fortune. Legend has it that the Benevent Treasure brings death to all who touch it, which is just one of the many mysteries Miss Silver unravels while placidly knitting.
