Alleyn performs his mission so successfully that on the night of the Ng'ombwanan Embassy's reception, the house and grounds are stiff with police. However, an assassin does strike, and Alleyn discovers a wealth of suspects in a coterie of ex-colonials residing in the very shadow of the Embassy.

"Nadia May is nothing short of extraordinary in this complicated mystery....Every character's eccentricity is explored and appropriately interpreted, adding spice, humor, and authenticity to a proper British mystery." (AudioFile)
"It's time to start comparing Christie to Marsh instead of the other way around." (New York)
"The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical puzzle whodunit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an Empress." (The Sun)
Love the Author, she never disappoints! Fabulous reader, just a nuance of change and walla a different person speaks. The story is moving toward the climax with never a bump, and...what was not clearly understood... is a marvelous play on words!! Loved it!
