Dame Ngaio Marsh was one of the queens of the golden age of mystery and the author of 32 titles in the Inspector Roderick Alleyn series. She was born and grew up in New Zealand.From AudioFile:
A world-famous soprano is murdered while visiting a country house in New Zealand. Unfortunately for the murderer, Superintendent Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard is also a guest. Narrator James Saxon has read many Marsh books on audio, and it shows. His Alleyn brings a pleasant competence and a light wit to the classic Marsh case. Listeners will want to curl up in a deep armchair and listen contentedly to a master detective at work. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
