Enter a Murderer stars detective genius Inspector Roderick Alleyn, Marsh's continuing central character. Inspector Alleyn is faced with a case of life imitating art when the script of a new play uncannily echoes a quarrel in the star's dressing room. Suddenly, things take a turn for the worse when charming actor Felix Gardener shoots his rival, Arthur Surbonardier, dead, with a gun Arthur himself loaded with blanks. Inspector Alleyn must find out who put the real bullet in the prop gun and why. Download and start listening now!

    " An improvement on the first Marsh -- she clearly flexes herself more freely in the world of theatre than that of upper class house parties. She exchanges drug fiends for Russian subversives -- which makes the plot slightly less silly. Unfortunately we still have to put up with Nigel Bathgate. "

    " Excellent, although not my favorite of the ones set in a theater. "

    " Ngaio Marsh, according to reviews and the book cover, is comparable to Agatha Christie and Margery Allingham. I found Enter A Murderer, an Inspector Alleyn mystery, to be entertaining and intriguing as the cast and crew at London's Unicorn Theatre all seem likely suspects. First published in 1935, this book holds up well, and could as easily be an historical mystery written 75 years later. This is my first Ngaio Marsh and I was hoping for a bit more New Zealand flavor. Are any of her books set in NZ? "

    " I am trying hard to like Marsh's mysteries, but having a difficult time getting started. The characters don't seem sharply drawn enough to stand out and the plots take a while to get going. Still, I liked this Roderick Alleyn mystery better than the first in the series, and I'll starting number three shortly. "

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.
