Review:

‘The incomparable Ngaio Marsh.’
Daily Express

‘Mrs Marsh’s work has the hallmark of the master. She is at the top of her form. Definitely first-class plus.’
Queen

‘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 pesky Mrs Bünz arrives at Mardian to investigate the rare survival of folk-dancing still practised there, she quickly antagonises the villagers. But Mrs Bünz is not the only source of friction; two of the other enthusiasts are also spoiling for a fight.

When the Sword Dancers' mock beheading becomes horribly real Superintendent Roderick Alleyn finds himself faced with a case of great complexity.

"Ngaio Marsh is among the most brilliant of those authors who are transforming the detective story from a mere puzzle into a novel with many other qualities."
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

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