Publisher's Summary

Lord Pastern fired his revolver. The figure in the spotlight fell, and the coup-de-theatre had become murder. Could Inspector Alleyn believe Pastern had let hatred of his future son-in-law go too far? Or would the tangle of jealousies and blackmail among the guests reveal another murderer?

I love this author and narrator.

These two make a perfect pair. I am afraid to figure out how many books I haven't listened to. It will be a sad day when I come to the end of the list! If you like nonviolent detective novels, you cannot do any better!

Needs Editing. One can download again, but really.

A good story, but this is the another Audible book that I have found where progress is cut up. This one has a part of Chapter one at the end of Chapter 6.

A Classic Ngaio Marsh

James Saxton's reading of this is superb. Here is Marsh's usual fantastical, yet utterly believable characters and her reliably ingenious plot. And, of course, the incomparable Alleyn. What's not to love?
