Aging actress Mary Bellamy reveled in the adoration of her family, friends, and fans at her birthday party. That is, right up until one of them murdered her with a puff of deadly perfume that turned out to be the insecticide Mary used in her flower garden. To the detained guests at the party, the dear, departed Mary became ever so much more beloved in death than she was in life; her mood could swing from charming to vicious on a moment's notice. When Superintendent Roderick Alleyn arrives, he finds an entire collection of despicably fawning family and guests to sort through, all of whom are suspects. Alleyn masterfully works the case through to its shocking conclusion. Download and start listening now!

    " 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. "

    " Enjoyable murder mystery. It is always interesting to see how an author can arrange for someone to be murdered almost in public. "

    " I honestly did not figure this one out until the very end. I did wonder why Mary was so popular because the picture painted of her was not very flattering in my opinion. "

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.
