En route to a family vacation on the French Riviera, Inspector Roderick Alleyn glimpses from the train a shocking tableau. In a moonlit window, a white-robed figure raises a knife to a woman’s shadow. Thus begins his incognito exploration of the Chateau of the Silver Goat, where a jet-set cult’s “Way of Life” could spell death for a maiden lady of a certain age—and even for Alleyn’s own young son—unless he can unveil its illicit mysteries.

This classic mystery thriller combines suspense, drug rings, and human sacrifice with spellbinding results.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[McCaddon’s] husky voice is perfect, as usual, and her narration, timing, accents, and tone are faultless…A good tale by Marsh in her prime that will be enjoyed by her fans as well as by fans of Agatha Christie.” 

    Kliatt 

  • “[Wanda McCaddon] brings all her storytelling expertise to the complicated plot, managing to keep the numerous characters distinct and identifiable. She ably imparts a suitable accent to the French characters and also conveys a credible portrayal of an Egyptian.”

    " Better than several other of hers I've read, and slightly less bad on the spinster issue than most. "

    " This is one of the latest (in terms of publication order) Ngaio Marsh mysteries I've read, and I guess she was trying to branch out. Rather than the typical English countryside, personally motivated murder I'm used to from her, this involves drugs and a cult! In France! It was amusing in a rather ridiculous way, but mostly I give it three stars because of its title. Spinsters in Jeopardy!!! Awesome. "

    " A book to be loved and relished, Spinsters in Jeopardy is Dame Marsh at her best, with everything from witches and lovers to human sacrifice and duplicity. Couldn't put it down, and wanted so much more when it was over... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sara | 1/5/2014

    " A truly over-the-top plot and characters, with lots of Satanism/eroticism/polyglot mystical gobbledygook thrown in. Alleyn and Troy's charming little boy who has plenty of moxie. Lovely, sometimes chilling, descriptions of a Mediterranean village. Someone else has mentioned the appealing spinster character and yes, she is wonderful. And if you love trains and looking out of their windows to spy on other people's lives, you'll love the opening scene that kicks off the whole thing...it might cure you... "

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.
