As in her previous book, Grave Mistake, Ngaio Marsh offers up a lady of a certain age, high-strung and hyperventilating, two ticks short of neurosis. Photo Finish's dead diva, the soprano Isabella Sommita, was widely loathed, so much so that the problem is less a lack of plausible suspects than an embarrassment of options. Though the grand country-house – and with it, the country-house murder – was history by 1980, when Photo Finish was originally published, Dame Ngaio got around the problem by setting the story on a lavish island estate, cut off from the mainland by a sudden storm. Happily, Inspector Alleyn is among the guests, and can take charge in the coppers' absence. The penultimate book in the series, Photo Finish is also one of only four books set in Marsh's native New Zealand. It's nice to think that she came home at the end.

About the Author:

Dame Ngaio Marsh was one of the queens of the golden age of mystery and the author of 32 titles in the Inspector Roderick Alleyn series. She was born and grew up in New Zealand.

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
