Ngaio Marsh is a master of the mystery story. She says of herself: "I just slid into detective writing....I had no notion I should be wedded to it for the rest of my life." Marsh slid to the very top of her profession, however, and now stands with Agatha Christie, who first inspired Miss Marsh to try her hand at detective novels.

"May's narration soars as the granddaughter of the deceased practices vocal exercises and further complicates matters with her romantic entanglement and family history." (AudioFile)
Love all Ngiao Marsh books. Just did not like this reader. The constant smacking noises quite ruined it for me.
A perfect "listen" for December. Interesting characters and an intriguing plot. Ngaio Marsh is great, and so is Nadia May. Highly recommended!
