Walk With Care

“Beware – walk with care,
Or mumbo jumbo will hoodoo you.”


“Beware – walk with care,
Or mumbo jumbo will hoodoo you.”

Young Jeremy Ware is suspected of stealing important papers, and Colonel Garrett of the Secret Service (last seen in Danger Calling) consults Benbow Smith about it. Even Rosalind Denny, still grieving for her late husband, suspects Jeremy. But when the young man, trying to exonerate himself, meets a beautiful sleepwalker in a cellar, matters quickly progress to a case of murder…

Walk with Care was originally published in 1933, and was the third novel to feature the series character of Benbow Smith (not to mention his delightfully perspicacious parrot, Ananias). This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.


“When I pick up a book by Patricia Wentworth I think, now to enjoy myself – and I always do.” Mary Dell, Daily Mirror
