Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Shakespearean actor takes his final bow.

Troy Alleyn, Inspector Roderick Alleyn's beautiful young wife, is engaged to paint a portrait of Sir Henry Ancred, famed Shakespearean actor and family patriarch, but she senses all is not well in the dreary castle of Ancreton. When old Henry is found dead after a suspicious dinner and an unfortunate family fracas, Troy enlists the impeccable aid of her husband to determine who among a cast of players would have a motive for murder-and the theatrical gift to carry it out.

Synopsis:

After a lethal birthday dinner of champagne and crayfish, famed Shakespearian actor Sir Henry is dead, and the cast of suspects is a mile long.

Synopsis:

-- The recent formation of the Ngaio Marsh Society demonstrates the lasting appeal of this classic practitioner of the crime novel.

About the Author

From her first book in 1934 to her final volume just before her death in 1982, Ngaio Marsh's work has remained legendary, and is often compared to that of Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, and Dorothy L. Sayers. During her celebrated fifty-year career, Marsh was made a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, was named Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire, won numerous prestigious awards, and penned 32 mystery novels. So sit back, draw the curtains, lock the doors, and put yourself in the hands of the Grande Dame of detective novels...
