Marsh reintroduces Scotland Yard's Inspector Roderick Alleyn to listeners, and this time, he's protecting his old school chum, the president of Ng'ombwana, against potential assassins during his stay in London. Nadia May is nothing short of extraordinary in this complicated mystery dominated by multiple male characters. In fact, listeners will disregard May's gender altogether as she shifts effortlessly from one dialect to another during heated and animated conversations. Every character's eccentricity is explored and appropriately interpreted, adding spice, humor, and authenticity to a proper British mystery.
