9780006512554: Vintage Murder

A touring theatre company in New Zealand forms the basis of one of Marsh’s most ambitious and innovative novels.

New Zealand theatrical manager Alfred Meyer wanted to celebrate his wife’s birthday in style. The piece de résistance would be the jeroboam of champagne which would descend gently into a nest of fern and coloured lights on the table, set up on stage after the performance.

But something went horribly wrong. Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn witnessed it himself. Was Meyer’s death the product of Maori superstitions? Or something much more down to earth?

Review:

‘The brilliant Ngaio Marsh ranks with Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers’
Times Literary Supplement

‘The theatre detail is engrossing.’
Margaret Lewis

‘A far more ambitious novel than anything Marsh had attempted before.’
American Journal of Popular Culture

‘Her work is as nearly flawless as makes no odds. Character, plot, wit, good writing, and sound technique.’
Sunday Times

‘The finest writer in the English languange of the pure, classical puzzle whodunnit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an Empress.’
The Sun

From the Back Cover:

THE ALLEYN MYSTERIES

Caroline made her usual dramatic entrance. 'Darlings!' she exclaimed. 'What's all this? Too exciting – and all for me!'

She picked up the scissors. Dimly-lit faces peered at the beautiful woman who stood with one arm raised, while a small fat man bent over the table. Suddenly Alleyn felt intolerably fearful – but at that moment Caroline cut the cord. Something enormous flashed down among them from the hidden heights and Allen's growing sense of horror became reality…

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

"The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical puzzle whodunnit. Among the crime queens, Ngalio Marsh stand out as an empress."
THE SUN
