From the Publisher:

'The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical whodunnit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an empress' - The Sun

'Ngaio Masrsh worked largely in within the conventions of the golden age detective story but transended the genre by the power of her writing, the excellent use she makes of her own experience and interests, and the rich variety of characters who people her novels. The best of her books will endure' - P.D. James
