When the Dolphin Theatre is given to Peregrine Jay by a wealthy but mysterious patron, he is overjoyed, but puzzled. When he is also given a glove that belonged to Shakespeare, Peregrine displays it in the dockside theatre and writes a play about it, which is an enormous success. But then a murder takes place, a boy is attacked, and the glove is stolen.

Could it be that oil and water don't mix? Inspector Roderick Alleyn is determined to find out.

Listener Opinions

    " Good mystery, easy to read. Author is from New Zealand and apparently has background in theater as a good number of her books take place in these settings. "

    " I don't remember this book all that well, but I'm pretty sure I liked it. This is one where you don't judge the book by its cover. It's about a theater (called the Dolphin Theater) and a murder, and I rememer it being suspenseful. "

    " Exceedingly well written! The words and sentences sing in clever word usage! Worth reading for that alone. The characters are intensely and sharply drawn and all so interesting I wanted far more of them on the page. Really fun read, if murder doesn't distract you from having fun reading... "

    " The snippets of history thrown in to this book were fascinating - I loved learning more about Shakespeare's life, and the theater craft, too. It was a really good blend of the past and the present (well, the recent past?) in a mystery that I didn't figure out until the end. "

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.
