Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 10/3/2013

    " Interesting, but neither victim, side-characters, nor murderer inspired any real interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Carter | 6/29/2013

    " If it were possible for Marsh to get a mere three stars from me, this would probably be a candidate. The mechanics of achieving isolation to limit suspects seem a little forced, and I find the motive weak in light of the situation. Still; what can you say? Marsh is a master and writes well. "

    " I really enjoyed this book . "

    " Holy contrivances, Watson! This one had it all, and I don't mean that as a compliment. My least favourite Marsh yet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Avril | 2/13/2012

    " Marsh's penultimate mystery, set in New Zealand. Excellent descriptions of the country; an okay mystery; spoiled a little by Marsh's anti-gay bias. She always writes gay characters as unpleasantly mincing, puzzling in someone so involved in the theatre. Ah well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hillary | 10/28/2011

    " It's reminiscent of False Scent. Perhaps it's time for a break from Ngaio. Or at least some other authors in between. "

    " And this one was beyond silly. Clearly the first Marsh I read was an exception. "

    " I wanted to slap the opera diva silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 6/22/2011

    " I love Ngaio Marsh's 'Inspector Alleyn' tales - very much of the Golden Age of detective fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 5/3/2011

    " Really different kind of plot "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morag | 10/2/2010

    " This was a light weight easy to read book. In a wonderful settting the murder takes place but who dunnit. Inspector Alleyn is forced to act alone as the island is cut off by a storm. I enjoyed this book as it didn't ask too much of the reader. Fairly obvious ending but great characterisation "

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.
