    " Last Ditch is a solid mystery in Marsh's usual Golden Age style. It's a little funny to see that style translated to the 1970s (this is one of her later novels), as Marsh describes things like leisure suits and heroin smuggling in a manner better suited to country houses and parlour maids. "

    " It was very interesting to meet little Ricky all grown up. And, like his mother so often did, dragging Alleyn accidentally into a case of murder. "

    " Not one of her best, only to be read by fans, but interesting to see how someone who started publishing in the 1930s dealt with the 1970s. "

    " I prefer the Inspector Alleyn mysteries set a bit earlier in time; the 1970s isn't my favorite time setting. I did enjoy Ricky, Alleyn's grown son, and the plot was interesting. "
