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:

From her first book in 1934 to her final volume just before her death in 1982, Ngaio Marsh's work has remained legendary, and is often compared to that of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. During her celebrated fifty-year career, Marsh was made a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, was named Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire, won numerous prestigious awards, and penned 32 mystery novels.

Now St. Martin's Dead Letter Mysteries is thrilled to make all of Marsh's novels available again for old fans to relish and new ones to discover. So sit back, draw the curtains, lock the doors, and put yourself in the hands of Grande Dame of detective novels...

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
