Dreams of stardom had lured Martyn Tarne from far-away New Zealand to make the dreary, soul-destroying round of West End agents and managers in search of work. The Vulcan Theatre had been her last forlorn hope, and now, driven by sheer necessity, she was glad to accept the humble job of dresser to its leading lady, Helena Hamilton. And then came the eagerly awaited opening night. To Martyn, the night brought a strange turn of the wheel of fortune, and to one distinguished member of the cast, death, sudden and unforeseen.

    " long but good even if inevitable conclusion "

    " A good murder mystery. "

    " Have this in audio book format as well as a much tattered paperback... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 12/8/2010

    " One of my favourite books. The protagonist (while perhaps a little too good to be true) effortlessly captures sympathy, and her journey is marvellously complemented by a full cast of rich and vivid characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lila | 10/19/2010

    " I like Marsh's theater mysteries. This one is more interesting for the theater setting and characters than for the mystery. "

    " Night at the Vulcan (Roderick Alleyn Mysteries) by Ngaio Marsh (1998) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 1/7/2010

    " Another classic murder mystery featuring Roderick Alleyn, Ngaio Marsh returns to one of her pet subjects - the theatre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 9/10/2009

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Priscilla | 3/24/2009

    " First of her books I'd ever read. It was a lot of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CLM | 3/1/2008

    " Ngaio Marsh's own background in the theater adds special appeal to her mysteries with that setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista the Krazy Kataloguer | 3/1/2008

    " Author Ngaio Marsh worked in the theatre in London, and it shows in this murder mystery set in a theatre there. I think this is my favorite of her books. "

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.
