Publisher's Summary

A collection of the BBC’s dramatisations of Ngaio Marsh’s most famous sleuth: Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn.  

This collection includes the following works by Ngaio Marsh:

'A Man Lay Dead' - the gentleman detective tackles a country house party murder. 

'A Surfeit of Lampreys' - gentleman sleuth Inspector Alleyn probes a grisly death of the head of a spendthrift aristocratic family. 

'Opening Night ' - when a leading actor is found gassed in his dressing room, it looks like suicide. But it transpires he was so detested that everyone had a motive for his murder. 

'When in Rome ' - 1970s Rome. Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn is incognito and on the trail of a vast drugs syndicate - and some exceptionally unsavoury blackmail. But he hasn't reckoned on murder.

A GREAT COLLECTION

I already have all of these on separate audiobooks and will be returning this collection. However; should I not already have these plays then I would definitely have kept this as they are excellent entertainment. I just wish we had more Ngaio Marsh plays to listen to on audio.
