Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1935

The theatrical stage is a common setting in Marsh's novels. In this story, read by James Saxon, the blustering actor Arthur Surbonardier is killed when a stage prop pistol--which he personally loaded with blanks--fires a live bullet. There is no shortage of suspects who would want Surbonardier dead, but it's up to Inspector Alleyn to find the guilty player. Saxon's voice is as powerful as it is beautiful, possessing an energy that works alongside Marsh's writing to propel the plot. Classically engaging.
