Artists in Crime by Ngaio Marsh
Book DescriptionOne of Ngaio Marsh's most famous murder mysteries, which introduces Inspector Alleyn to his future wife, the irrepressible Agatha Troy. It started as a student exercise, the knife under the drape, the model's pose chalked in place. But before Agatha Troy, artist and instructor, returns to the class, the pose has been re-enacted in earnest: the model is dead, fixed for ever in one of the most dramatic poses Troy has ever seen. It's a difficult case for Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn. How can he believe that the woman he loves is a murderess? And yet no one can be above suspicion...

Collected Short Mysteries, Paperback / softback (January 2016)» View all books by Ngaio Marsh
A collection of short stories written by Ngaio Marsh; a number of them feature Inspector Alleyn, the protagonist of Marsh's famous mystery series.
US Kirkus Review » A Roderick Alleyn story, in Peter Wimsey vein. First rate yarn, with unusual set-up in murder of artist model in view of whole class, everyone of whom is suspect, and most of whom had the opportunity. Clues point hither and yon, but most of them to one man - who is found murdered also. There's a romance throughout - and good background stuff. A sloppy piece of editing and proof-reading keep it out of the top class. (Kirkus Reviews)
