But someone puts an end to Miss Cost herself, and Miss Pride's guardian angel, Superintendent Roderick Alleyn, finds him on the spot in both senses of the word....

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 9/12/2013

    " Another Marsh revolving around a spinster who has 'gone wrong' at 'that time of age'. Overall a reasonable mystery, and Miss Emily is a likeable character, but the book leaves a vague sense of dissatisfaction - probably due to the continuing circumstances for the 'femme fatale' of the piece. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyrie | 7/20/2013

    " The curing of warts - what an odd thing to base a mystery and/or a faith healing on. And how strange for a murder to revolve around how it might have been done. "

    " I did not like this book I found it very dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 10/22/2012

    " A little difficult English dialect but good plot and quirky characters. Interesting setting and mystery. "

    " Entertaining, and kept me guessing. Surprised at the end, too. "

    " Pleasant diversion along the lines of an Agatha Christie mystery. Very British. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Mitchell | 4/25/2011

    " Not Agatha Christie or Ellis Peters but a fun escape to fill an afternoon. The whodunit was who I thought it was but I wasn't sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L D | 3/29/2011

    " Extremely fluid and descriptive writer. Did break one of the rules of golden era detective fiction though -- withheld a clue from the reader (but gave it to the detective). Otherwise, another very literary story from one of the queens of crime fiction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 2/18/2011

    " I liked the detective but there was no character development and he was hardly talked about. Way too much time spent on building up to the murder. "

    " Another great book filled with interesting characters "

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.
