    " This one was interesting in part because of the pace; practically the entire book takes place in 1 day, including Alleyn solving the mystery. Marsh writes about "theater people" in a way that makes the characters funny, yet individual. They are all certain "types," but not caricatures. A comment made in passing at the beginning of the book hinted who the murderer might be, but the resolution was still interesting. "

    " I was very very amused by this one. It was classic on EVERY level. There was nothing missed or left out to the point of utter silly giggling over it. I suspect Marsh of giggling herself when writing it. "

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.
