A winter weekend ends in snowbound disaster in a novel which remains a favourite among Marsh readers.
It began as an entertainment: eight people, many of them enemies, gathered for a winter weekend by a host with a love for theatre. They would be the characters in a drama that he would devise. It ended in snowbound disaster.
Everyone had an alibi - and most a motive as well. But Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn, when he finally arrived, knew it all hung on Thomas, the dancing footman...
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.
She spins a smooth yarn, does Ngaio Marsh. Here's another, with Roderick Alleyn of the Yard brought into the picture half way through, and plenty of build-up at an eccentric houseparty before the actual murder occurs. A bored dilettante decides to turn the scapel to his own edification by bringing, incompatibles together, and he gets more than he bargained for (and so do his guests), when jealousy, suspicion, two-timing, etc. get going and a storm-bound household goes haywire.
