About the Author:

Dame Ngaio Marsh was born in New Zealand in 1895 and died in February 1982. She wrote over 30 detective novels and many of her stories have theatrical settings, for Ngaio Marsh's real passion was the theatre. She was both actress and producer and almost single-handedly revived the New Zealand public's interest in the theatre. It was for this work that she received what she called her `damery' in 1966.

From AudioFile:

Nadia May's British accent and soprano voice perfectly capture Marsh's narrative. Her portrayal of the bizarre cast of characters is superb. M.E.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
