Review:

‘A really marvellous Marsh.’
PUNCH

‘A first-rate book – an enticing opening, a fine whodunnit plot and exceptional richness in characterisation, background and humour. Don’t miss it on any account.’
SUNDAY TIMES

‘Shows Ngaio at the top of her form, combining a strong plot with well-developed characters and a variety of unexpected detail.’
MARGARET LEWIS

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

From the Back Cover:

THE ALLEYN MYSTERIES

When the Dolphin Theatre is given to Peregrine Jay by a wealthy but mysterious patron, he is overjoyed – but puzzled.

When he is also given a glove that belonged to Shakespeare, Peregrine displays it in the dock-side theatre and writes a play about it – which is an enormous success.

But then a murder takes place, a boy is attacked, the glove is stolen. Could it be that oil and water don't mix?

Inspector Roderick Alleyn is determined to find out…

SUNDAY TIMES

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