Book Description

A body in the back of a taxi begins an elegantly constructed mystery, perhaps the finest of Marsh's 1930s novels. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

THE ALLEYN MYSTERIES

The season had begun.

Débutantes and chaperons were planning their luncheons, teas, dinners, balls.

And the blackmailer was planning his strategies, stalking his next victim.

But Chief-Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn knew that something was up. He had already planted his friend Lord Robert Gospell at the scene.

But someone else got there first…

"Ngaio Marsh's 'Death in a White Tie' is the best detective story I have read…"

About the Author

Dame Ngaio Marsh was born in New Zealand in 1895 and died in February 1982. She wrote over 30 detective novels and many of her stories have theatrical settings, for Ngaio Marsh’s real passion was the theatre. She was both actress and producer and almost single-handedly revived the New Zealand public’s interest in the theatre. It was for this work that she received what she called her ‘damery’ in 1966.
