    " Ngaio is often compared to Agatha Christie, but I find her more detailed and in some ways a better writer. This book reflects the English upper class life of the '30s woven in a very good mystery. Lots of fun to read! "

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.
