Product description

From the Back Cover

THE ALLEYN MYSTERIES

The April Fool's Day had been a roaring success for all, it seemed – except for poor Mr Cartell who had ended up in the ditch – for ever.

Then there was the case of Mr Percival Pyke Period's letter of condolence, sent before the body was found – not to mention the family squabbles.

It was a puzzling crime for Superintendent Alleyn…

"Entertaining and disastrously readable."
GUARDIAN

"Neat, dexterous…Miss Marsh's freshest and most enjoyable performance for years."
SUNDAY TIMES

"The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical puzzle whodunnit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an express."
THE SUN
