©1977 Ngaio Marsh; (P)2000 Blackstone Audiobooks
"With the deft touch of a master, Marsh paints her highly visual English countryside sets and charming, gracious characters....Nadia May is unfaltering in carrying off this wonderful work which, in its simplicity, is a throwback to a less complicated, more gently paced period." (AudioFile)
I probably would, because the story is reliable Ngaio Marsh: well-plotted, funny, and above all filled with wonderful characters.
I liked the relationship between Detective Roderick Alleyn and his grown son.
She did a pretty good job with accents and so forth, but I'm afraid I love the other narrator of Marsh's books, James Saxon, too much to give her the highest marks. Plus the quality of the recording was not the best.
Oh, no! It's much too long for that!
James Saxon rocks.
