The Silver Sting by Angela Dandy – Book Review



It has been thirteen years since the elderly residents of Magnolia Court were scammed out of a comfortable retirement by an unscrupulous developer who took their money and ran.

A twist of fate leads Gabby, Uncle Max and Aunt Hetty’s niece to uncover the developer’s whereabouts.

Pointed in the right direction by Gabby, the residents draw on their life skills to overcome one obstacle after another in order to recover what is theirs by right.

No one should underestimate the tenacity and ingenuity of this charming and endearing bunch of senior citizens. Age and infirmity are set aside as they set out on their quest to seek retribution.



The residents of Magnolia Court had been scammed some years before, by a developer who then disappeared with their funds…..and this is the story of how with teamwork these elderly ‘grifters’ can get justice…….

I loved the insight into the characters and their individual stories and how each of them were involved…will they get retribution? Never underestimate the elderly, with their life experience they can overcome any obstacle….can’t they?

There are some great twists and surprises, poor Gabby, and also some lovely heartwarming moments with these lively senior citizens in this entertaining cosy crime mystery by Angela Dandy.
