The music rose to a climax. Lord Pastern aimed his revolver and fired. The figure in the spotlight fell and what had been intended as a coup-de-thétre had become murder....

Could Inspector Alleyn believe that the eccentric peer had let hatred of his future son-in-law go too far? Or would the tangle of jealousies and blackmail among the party guests reveal another murderer?

Listener Opinions

    " Not my favourite Ngaio Marsh, but well worth reading and re-reading. Very funny, but with a rather unpleasant conclusion--but you don't realize how unpleasant until the last page. "

    " This old book by Ngaio Marsh has been newly re-recorded & I enjoyed listening to it, but it pales next to newer stuff. "

    " A fun light mystery read - like a slightly more sophisticated Agatha Christie book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 12/20/2012

    " A little dishevelled Marsh. I enjoy it for the colourful characters and rich vocabulary. "

    " Entertaining, but not one of her best. I can seldom guess whodunit, but this one was obvious to me. The method was interesting, though. "

    " A Wreath for Rivera by Ngaio Marsh (1998) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 9/25/2012

    " This one was OK but not one of the best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 7/18/2012

    " Memorable characters, memorable setting, interesting mode of murder = another great Roderick Alleyn mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcy | 1/28/2012

    " I never have liked Marsh's famous detective Roderick Alleyn. I think he is such a snob. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyrie | 12/22/2011

    " This one was weird - lots of "hip" talk and strangeness. I gather Marsh had made a few forays into jazz clubs.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 11/19/2011

    " Characters ridiculous enough for P.G. Wodehouse but with all the cunning of Ngaio Marsh. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Stephenson | 2/19/2011

    " Did I detect an intent to parody Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey in Marsh's Lord Pastern? "

About the Author
Author Ngaio Marsh

Ngaio Marsh (1895–1982), born in New Zealand, wrote over thirty detective novels. Many of her stories had theatrical settings, as her real passion was for the theater. She was both an actress and a producer and almost single-handedly revived the New Zealand public’s interest in live theater. In 1966 she was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
