Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Good psychological background for a well-sustained crime story which brings Chief Detective-Inspector Alleyn to the scene, in far off New Zealand, where a woman had died a grisly sort of death two years ago - and the household had remained intact. Each member of the family presents another angle on the dead woman and Alleyn, interpreting the evidence, reconstructs the crime and gets his man. Able. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Ngaio Marsh

Dame Ngaio Marsh was born in New Zealand in 1895 and died in February 1982. She wrote over 30 detective novels and many of her stories have theatrical settings, for Ngaio Marsh's real passion was the theatre. She was both actress and producer and almost single-handedly revived the New Zealand public's interest in the theatre. It was for this work that she received what she called her 'damery' in 1966.
