Once again, Roderick Alleyn is on the case of a killer who plucked the life from the newest initiate of The House of the Sacred Flame, just as she was about to drink the sacrificial wine, being as it was laced with cyanide. In investigating her death he finds the High Priest and his followers are more enmeshed is the earthly passions of lust and jealousy than they would like to imagine. It may hail from the 'golden age' of the whodunit, but Ngaio Marsh's Death in Ecstasy contains enough of the dark secrets of a ritualistic cult and the hidden depths of London's drug world to satisfy the modern reader.

    " Some rather grating stereotypes bring an already not-special effort down. "

    " I have a crush on Inspector Alleyn and Ngaio Marsh is now a favorite alongside Agatha Christie. This was my first read of Inspector Alleyn series. I did not expect much from this book and for that, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery as well as the set of 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.
