Opening Night (Paperback)

Ngaio Marsh

-  

This collection brings together three of Dame Ngaio Marsh's captivating Inspector Alleyn mysteries. Opening Night tells the story of Martyn Tarne, a lady who leaves New Zealand in search of stardom in the soul-destroying West End. Through sheer necessity, she accepts the humble job of dresser to the Vulcan Theatre's leading lady, but the eagerly-anticipated opening night brings a strange turn of fortune - and sudden unforeseen death. Spinsters in Jeopardy focuses on Mr Oberon, the leader of a coven of witches who reside in a fortress in the mountains. When someone stumbles upon his secret, Mr Oberon decides his strange rituals requite a human sacrifice. Scales of Justice sees the inhabitants of Swevenings stirred by a fierce competition to catch a monstor trout from their beautiful stream, but then one of their community is found brutally murdered and beside him is the freshly-killed fish. It is up to Inspector Roderick Alleyn to solve the crime!
