PHOTO-FINISH
The luxury mansion on New Zealand's Lake Waihoe is the ideal place for a world-famous soprano to rest after her triumphant tour. Among the other guests are Chief Superintendent Alleyn and his wife - but theirs is not a social visit. When tragedy strikes, and isolated by one of the lake's sudden storms, Alleyn faces one of his trickiest cases...

LIGHT THICKENS
Peregrine Jay, owner of the Dolphin Theatre, is putting on a magnificent production of Macbeth, the play that, superstition says, always brings bad luck. But one night the claymore swings and the dummy's head is more than real: murder behind the scene. Luckily, Chief Superintendent Roderick Alleyn is in the audience...

BLACK BEECH AND HONEYDEW
With all the insight and style her readers came to expect of her, Ngaio Marsh's autobiography captures all the joys, fears and hopes of a spirited young woman growing up in Christchurch, and charts her theatre and writing careers both in New Zealand and the UK. This sanguine, unpretentious and revealing book has been acclaimed for telling her most distinguished mystery - who was Ngaio Marsh?

Review:

"It's time to start comparing Christie to Marsh instead of the other way around."--" New York Magazine"

From the Back Cover:

The luxury mansion on New Zealand’s Lake Waihoe was the ideal place for the world-famous soprano to rest after her triumphant tour. Chief Superintendent Alleyn and his wife were among the house guests – but theirs was not a social visit.

When tragedy struck, the peace of the island was shattered. With a houseful of suspects, now isolated by one of the lake’s sudden storms, Alleyn was to face one of his trickiest cases ...

“The brilliant Ngaio Marsh ranks with Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers”
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

“Vintage Marsh – presents a neat puzzle, sparkling writing and the civilized veneer that characterize most of her books.”
NEW YORK TIMES

“If my other authors can write as well as this in celebration of 'their' 80th birthday, the Crime Club list will be assured for a very long time to come.”
ELIZABETH WALTER, 'Ngaio Marsh’s editor'

“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
