A winter weekend ends in snowbound disaster in a novel which remains a favorite among Marsh readers. It began as an entertainment: eight people, many of them enemies, gathered for a winter weekend by a host with a love for theater. They would be the characters in a drama that he would devise. It ended in snowbound disaster. Everyone had an alibi—and most a motive as well. But Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn, when he finally arrived, knew it all hung on Thomas, the dancing footman.

"It's time to start comparing Christie to Marsh instead of the other way around." --New York magazine
