This series is for when you have the time to read about a world that is living at a different pace. The luxuary of all the wonderful details plus a police procedural exploring all the facts of the case. Wonderful. Two spinisters in a small village cause havoc and possibly murder.

A classic puzzle mystery with all of the trimmings. I like Marsh's books more consistantly than i like Christies, and this one is no exception.

This Inspector Alleyn mystery is full of interesting characters. One of the things I like about Ngaio Marsh's peripheral characters, is that they sometimes reappear, maybe years later, in some capacity with regard to a new mystery. Alleyn returns to a remote village to visit friends made in a prior episode. Marsh's rich characters and interesting storyline take the suspense to the end.
