9780006512417: Final Curtain

A country house murder, artistic insight and the post-war reunion of Alleyn and Troy combine in Ngaio Marsh’s wittiest and most readable novel.

Agatha Troy, world famous portrait painter, is inveigled into accepting a commission to paint the 70-year-old Sir Henry Ancred, Bart., the Grand Old Man of the stage. But just as she has completed her portrait, the old actor dies.

The dramatic circumstances of his death are such that Scotland Yard is called in – in the person of Troy’s long-absent husband, Chief Detective-Inspector Roderick Alleyn…

Review:

‘…purty ngai perfect.’
Saturday Review of Literature

‘She uses the old formula brilliantly.’
Julian Symons

‘A better novel than a detective story.’
Toronto Globe and Mail

‘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

'One moment, Sir Cedric,' Alleyn began. 'Why did you and Miss Sonia Orrincourt plan a series of practical jokes on your grandfather?'

It was not pleasant to watch the blood sink form Cedric's face. The process left his eyelids and the pouches under his eyes mauvish. His colourless lips pouted and then widened into an unlovely smile. 'Well really!' he tittered. 'That just shows you, doesn't it? So darling Sonia has confided in you.' After a moment's hesitation, he added: 'As far as I'm concerned, dear Mr Alley, that's the end of darling Sonia…'

"Her work is nearly flawless as makes no odds, character, plot, wit, good writing and sound technique."
SUNDAY TIMES
