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.From AudioFile:
Nadia May's masterful reading is at first tainted by poor sound-editing; tape hiss, page-turns, and heavy breathing make it difficult to suspend disbelief. But the exotic setting, the brilliant writing, and May's lovely performance quickly make it easy for the listener to overlook these technical flaws. Set at Wai-ata-tapu, a remote New Zealand health resort known for its therapeutic sulfur baths, the story involves deception and murder. Is there a Nazi spy at work? Will the unpleasant Maurice Questing take over the Claire family resort? Will misunderstandings abate between the Maori natives and the English colonists? Will awkward Barbara Claire find true love? And where is Inspector Alleyn? Nadia May (Wanda McCadden) delivers the goods in this WWII-era Golden Age mystery. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
