Murder and mayhem strike when a small group of people are confined to an island in the middle of a New Zealand lake in one of Ngaio Marsh's last -- and best -- novels. The luxury mansion on New Zealand's Lake Waihoe was the ideal place for the world-famous soprano to rest after her triumphant tour. Chief Superintendent Alleyn and his wife were among the house guests -- but theirs was not a social visit. When tragedy struck, the peace of the island was shattered.

About the Author:

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:

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
