A body in the back of a taxi begins an elegantly constructed mystery, perhaps the finest of Marsh's 1930s novels. The season had begun. Debutantes and chaperones were planning their luncheons, teas, dinners, balls. And the blackmailer was planning his strategies, stalking his next victim. But Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn knew that something was up. He had already planted his friend Lord Robert Gospell at the scene. But someone else got there first...

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:

Lauded as "the best detective story ever" by Dashiell Hammett, Marsh's vintage whodunit grabs the listener at once with a group of debutantes and a tragic murder. Elegance mixes with blackmail as Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn pairs up with artist/paramour Agatha Troy to investigate. Narrator Peter Wickham is particularly strong in his delivery of women's voices as well as the peculiarly high-pitched vocalizations of Lord "Bunchy" Gospell. The spoiled society youth are made more engaging by Wickham's charm. Wickham delivers upper-class British accents and intonations to vividly bring to mind the glamorous 1930s era. As the blackmailer piles up victims, this classic mystery continues to thrive with Marsh's clever wit and timeless plot construction. A.W. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
