VINTAGE MURDER

by | Read by James Saxon

Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1937

Ngaio Marsh is undeservedly one of the least appreciated writers of the British Golden Age of mystery. This early adventure of Inspector Roderick Alleyn is read with magnificent force and versatility by British stage and television star James Saxon. Set in the author's native New Zealand, where the Scotland Yard detective is on holiday, VINTAGE MURDER follows a traveling English theater company whose manager is killed when a rigged champagne bottle falls on his head. Saxon effectively captures the personalities, the ethnicities and the social strata of the many characters. His smooth and effortless reading adds to the colorful characters, theatrical background, and New Zealand setting of Marsh's novel. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
