Book Note: Ngaio Marsh, Singing in the Shrouds

I read this book about 25-Aug-2003. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1958. This note was last modified Monday, 05-May-2014 22:30:01 PDT.

This is book 20 of the "Roderick Alleyn" series.

This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.


Got this one out of order in the recent handful, but it probably doesn't matter much. Dunno yet really.

Another boat trip for Alleyn. I'm surprised that Scotland Yard will pop him on a boat to South Africa on such short notice.

And it's an early serial killer story. I don't remember too much that violates my modern understanding. By amazing luck, they had Alleyn, and a priest, and a psychiatrist all proven not involved, so they could work together and (more important) talk about the situation.
