Ngaio Marsh: Death on the Air and Other Stories

Death on the Air and Other Stories From the Publisher:
A man dies with his hand on a radio dial. A disguised aristocrat finds murder at the opening night of a play. A cryptogram produces death in an English churchyard. These are the short cases of Scotland Yard's Inspector Roderick Alleyn who charmed his way through more than thirty novels.

'Death on the Air and Other Stories' serves both as the perfect introduction to Ngaio Marsh and as a nostalgic journey for the aficionado. It is the only collection of Ngaio Marsh short stories, first published in 1995 to celebrate her centenary, and concludes with a script written for the television series Crown Court, plus two additional pieces missing from the centenary hardback.

"Ngaio Marsh worked largely within the conventions of the golden age detective story but transcended the genre by the power of her writing, the excellent use she makes of her own experience and interests, and a rich variety of characters who people her novels. The best of her books will endure." 'P.D.JAMES'
