‘Continues to be one of Ngaio’s most popular novels, and has outstripped all her other titles in sales.’
MARGARET LEWIS

‘Ngaio Marsh transforms the detective story from a mere puzzle into a novel.’
DAILY EXPRESS

‘She is astoundingly good.’
DAILY EXPRESS

‘The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical puzzle whodunnit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an Empress.’
THE SUN

From the Back Cover:

THE ALLEYN MYSTERIES

Sir John Phillips, the Harley Street surgeon, and his beautiful nurse Jane Harden are almost too nervous to operate. The emergency case on the table before them is the Home Secretary – and they both have very good, personal reasons to wish him dead.

Within hours he does die, although the operation itself was a complete success, and Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn must find out why…

"Nobody begins to touch Ngaio Marsh's skill at creating corpses and suspects…Her dialogue is a continuous delight."
NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE

"The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical puzzle whodunnit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an express."
