Book Note: Ngaio Marsh, Death in a White Tie

I read this book about 5-Dec-2003. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1938. This note was last modified Monday, 05-May-2014 22:27:13 PDT.

This is book 7 of the "Roderick Alleyn" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


Hey, I found another old one! In fact, I appear to have found the one where Troy gets engaged to Alleyn. The romance doesn't come up to Sayers' standard, though.

A very interesting story of blackmail and murder in London high society. I seem to like her London stories better than the small town ones, mostly.

This one contains some remarkable coincidences -- the secretary is actually the same girl who took the letter to the new husband 15 years ago, or something.
