9780007944668: The Nursing Home Murder

For an unlucky member of parliament, a hospital stay is the unkindest cut of all...

When Britain's Home Secretary complained of abdominal pains, it seemed like a simple case of appendicitis. But minutes after his operation, the ill-fated politician lay dead on the table. When Chief Detective-Inspector Roderick Alleyn arrives to dissect the situation, he finds many a likely suspect, including a vengeful surgeon, a lovelorn nurse, an unhappy wife, and a cabinet full of political foes.

About the Author:

From her first book in 1934 to her final volume just before her death in 1982, Ngaio Marsh's work has remained legendary, and is often compared to that of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. During her celebrated fifty-year career, Marsh was made a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, was named Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire, won numerous prestigious awards, and penned 32 mystery novels.

Now St. Martin's Dead Letter Mysteries is thrilled to make all of Marsh's novels available again for old fans to relish and new ones to discover. So sit back, draw the curtains, lock the doors, and put yourself in the hands of Grande Dame of detective novels...

From AudioFile:

When British Home Secretary Sir Derek O'Callahan dies, only his "ice maiden" wife considers the matter worth investigation. It comes as no surprise that everyone wished the unpleasant man dead. James Saxon, with his British accent, narrates this mystery expertly. He uses subtle changes in tone and inflection to distinguish his characters and switches to women's voices with equal success. This clever mystery makes a satisfying addition to any audio collection. J.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
