"Someone's added a new flourish to South Mardian's annual sword dance. One of the dancers in the performance has been neatly decapitated. But was it murder? or magic? In a village so totally populated by eccentrics, anything is believable and everyone's a suspect. Scotland Yards Inspector Alleyn has to perform some nimble steps of his own to crack this bizarre case"

If you love mysteries, and especially do not want to have to worry about profanity and sex, this series by Ngaio Marsh featuring Inspector Alleyn is not to be missed. She is almost as good a writer as Agatha Christie! You will love this book so much that you will want to read all of them I am sure!

Good mystery. It was so interesting to learn about some of the ancient customs/rites of English country folk. You always learn something new in Marsh's books.
