Description
Crime comes to a country house: “Any Ngaio Marsh story is certain to be Grade A, and this one is no exception.” —The New York Times
This classic from the Golden Age of British mystery opens during a country-house party between the two world wars—servants bustling, gin flowing, the gentlemen in dinner jackets, the ladies all slink and smolder. Even more delicious: The host, Sir Hubert Handesley, has invented a new and especially exciting version of that beloved parlor entertainment, The Murder Game . . .
“It’s time to start comparing Christie to Marsh instead of the other way around.” —New York Magazine
“A peerless practitioner of the slightly surreal, English-village comedy-mystery.” —Kirkus Reviews
