Roderick Alleyn is as always suave and debonair, and Inspector Fox is adorably himself. The obligatory pair of young lovers are well-drawn and exceedingly well integrated into the plot.
If you like Marsh, you'll like this book.
The story begins with an actress who on her 50th birthday imagines the grandeur of her own funeral. As the day progresses she flies into a rage at her theatrical associates at one perceived slight after another. The tension builds as the day goes on to the climatic moment, her birthday party. This being a mystery someone dies. Enter the detective who must unravel from all the half truths and secrets the who and the why. The novel is constructed like a clockwork providing enough information that the reader can unravel the puzzle if only she or he is looking in the right direction. Like a great magic trick.
An intelligent and well written brain teaser, and a satisfying read.
They are enjoyable to read.
Navajo Marsh was unquestionably ok mystery writer
