Death in Ecstasy by Ngaio Marsh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The mystery had me baffled until the very end and there wasn't as much about Alleyn's life as there is in some of the books. It was good, but not one of my favorite Marsh novels. Chief Detective-Inspector Roderick Alleyn is one of my favorite detectives. He is much more of a develped human character than many of the detectives of the period. I also love the interactions between him and Nigel Bathgate and the relationship Alleyn has with Detective-Inspector Fox, aka Brer Fox.
This book counts toward the Vintage Mystery Challenge in the category of Repeat Offenders (a mystery featuring a favorite series detective)
