When a British blue blood living in the pastoral village of Swevenings is brutally murdered, no one is spared examination by Scotland Yard’s Inspector Roderick Alleyn. Nadia May lovingly brings to life a myriad of characters--Lady Lacklander’s aristocratic conceit; her son’s sniveling weakness; Nurse Kettle’s common, busybody caring; and Inspector Alleyn’s no-nonsense, logical, yet compassionate, crispness. May reads clearly, fully develops Marsh’s characters and effectively builds suspense. Her lovely British voice offers a delightful rendering of Marsh’s finely crafted classic.
