    Story
    (91)

    It started as a student exercise, the knife under the drape, the model's pose chalked in place. But before Agatha Troy, artist and instructor, returns to the class, the pose has been re-enacted in earnest: the model is dead, fixed for ever in one of the most dramatic poses Troy has ever seen. It's a difficult case for Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn. How can he believe that the woman he loves is a murderess? And yet no one can be above suspicion.

    Charles says: "Aii! Abridged"
    "Like a dramatisation; outstanding narrator"

    If you could sum up Artists in Crime in three words, what would they be?

    Classic Detective Story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roderick Alain; Although the author didn't spend an inordinate amount of text towards his inner dialogue, his actions and sense of humor were so well-demonstrated in the story I felt that I knew him very well by the end. This is the first Ngaio Marsh book I've read, so this has been my introduction to the character.


    Which character – as performed by Benedict Cumberbatch – was your favorite?

    A tie between Inspector Fox and the brief but hilarious appearance of Sonia's girlfriend (Bobbi?)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    She died for art.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the narrator's voice acting, accents and characterizations were so good I forgot it was an audiobook; it was like a BBC dramatisation with a full cast.
