Title: Death of a Peer

Author: Ngaio Marsh

Price: $10.00


Death of a Peer


Inspector Alleyn and a Wealthy Corpse

What happened to the Lampreys shortly after Roberta arrived in London was something different. It was murder!—a particularly nasty and gruesome murder, in spite of the fact that the Lampreys profited by it exceedingly. Things had always hap­pened to them. Roberta had realized that in the old New Zealand days, when she had first known and loved them. They always seemed to be ducking in and out of trouble.

But murder was different. Even with their humor and delightful vagaries they couldn't duck out of the things that began with the awful screams from their elevator. Roberta, at least, was terrified for them—especially, when Inspector Alleyn began his investigation.

No wonder Will Cuppy called this "a necessity for every fan!" It is a mystery story of speed and entertainment such as only Ngaio Marsh can create.
