Jeremy Clyde Stars as Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn in two BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatizations.

Opening Night
Tensions are running high on the first night of a new play. When the leading actor is found gassed in his dressing room, it looks like suicide. It soon transpires, however, that he was widely detested, and almost everyone in the theatre had a possible motive for his murder. It's down to Inspector Alleyn to discover who acted upon their grudge.

When in Rome
Alleyn is in Rome, traveling incognito on the trail of an international drug racket. His path crosses the members of the Sebasstian Mailer's tour group, all of whom seem strangely unperturbed that their guide has disappeared in the depths of a Roman basilica. Then a body is found in an Etruscan sarcophagus, and Alleyn is very much concerned.

Michael Cochrane, David Swift, and Nick Waring are amongst the cast in these two atmospheric adaptations of novels by Ngaio Marsh. Download and start listening now!

    " It has been years and years since I read Ngaio Marsh and now I am wondering why I waited so long to pick up another one of her books. A very interesting, character-centric story of the London theatre with murder as a side-note. This book is not just for mystery lovers. "

    " I really enjoyed this mystery book. The language was hard to follow at times, set in the early 1900's I believe, however you got used to it and became involved in the characters lives. This was another book I couldn't put down, although I will admit it took me a little while to really get into it. At first I thought it was a bit slow, but soon after I was hooked. "

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.
