About this title

Synopsis:

[This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]

Ngaio Marsh returns to her New Zealand roots to transplant the classic country-house murder mystery to an upland sheep station on South Island and produces one of her most exotic and intriguing novels.

Parliament member Florence Rubrick has the wool pulled over her eyes--quite literally. She's been found dead, her body pressed into a bale of wool.

When Inspector Alleyn pays a visit to her New Zealand country home, he meets two fine, handsome men and two lovely young women, all of whom have reason to be grateful to dear Flossie for saving their lives. But as Inspector Alleyn learns, there are secrets aplenty hiding in the floorboards of that sheep station, and one in particular conceals a murderous motive that has the look and smell of treason.

About the Author:

NGAIO MARSH, (1895-1982), born in New Zealand, wrote over thirty detective novels. Many of her stories had theatrical settings, as Marsh's real passion was for the theater. She was both an actress and a producer, and almost single-handedly revived the New Zealand public's interest in live theater. In 1966 she was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
