Review:

'Splendid intelligence, wit and sheer skill of storytelling.' Sunday Telegraph 'Marvellous a really good book.' Daily Mail 'Irresistible Grave Mistake is a superb book. It's time to compare Agatha Christie to Ngaio Marsh instead of the other way around.' New York Magazine 'Ngaio Marsh fans will be in seventh heaven.' New York Times 'A brilliant traditional detective story by Dame Ngaio: two bodies in a grave, a stolen stamp, a suicide that wasn't. Impossible to say much more without revealing the tell-tale clues so cleverly sown in our path.' Evening Standard 'Reading a Ngaio Marsh mystery is like being in the company of a gracious, spirited raconteur.' Newsweek 'Make no mistake Grave Mistake is a classic in its field.' --New York Times Book Review
