Ngaio Marsh was born and educated in New Zealand. Along with Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, and Dorothy L. Sayers, she was classed as one of the four original "Queens of Crime"—female British crime writers who dominated the crime fiction genre in the 1920s and 1930s.From AudioFile:
A serial killer has strangled his latest victim and escaped onto a cruise ship leaving London that very night. Within days, Superintendent Roderick Alleyn is sent onboard, undercover, to find the culprit before he strikes again. James Saxon has a beautifully modulated voice. If you're a fan of the British mystery on audio, you'll have heard him before. His voice has aged well, like a fine, full-bodied wine. He plays the characters here as exaggerations of type: the repressed school teacher, the femme fatale, the lush TV actor well on his way to a nervous breakdown. His treatment paints the scenes with a broad brush but achieves the overall effect of a vivid story. D.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
