MURDER IN HIGH C...

A persistent paparazzi has hounded operatic soprano Isabella Sommita until her nerves are at the breaking point. Now her millionaire boyfriend has whisked her to a New Zealand island to recover. There she plans a performance of an aria written just for her-- by her secret young lover, who, along with a bevy of envious celebrities, is also on the island.

About the Author:

From her first book in 1934 to her final volume just before her death in 1982, Ngaio Marsh's work has remained legendary, and is often compared to that of Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, and Dorothy L. Sayers. During her celebrated fifty-year career, Marsh was made a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, was named Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire, won numerous prestigious awards, and penned 32 mystery novels. So sit back, draw the curtains, lock the doors, and put yourself in the hands of the Grande Dame of detective novels...

From AudioFile:

A world-famous soprano is murdered while visiting a country house in New Zealand. Unfortunately for the murderer, Superintendent Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard is also a guest. Narrator James Saxon has read many Marsh books on audio, and it shows. His Alleyn brings a pleasant competence and a light wit to the classic Marsh case. Listeners will want to curl up in a deep armchair and listen contentedly to a master detective at work. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
