    Description

    A country house murder, artistic insight and the postwar reunion of Alleyn and Troy combine in Ngaio Marsh’s wittiest and most readable novel.

    Agatha Troy, world-famous portrait painter, is inveigled into accepting a commission to paint the 70-year-old Sir Henry Ancred, Bart., the Grand Old Man of the stage. But just as she has completed her portrait, the old actor dies.

    The dramatic circumstances of his death are such that Scotland Yard is called in - in the person of Troy’s long-absent husband, Chief Detective-Inspector Roderick Alleyn....

    Commentaires

    "The brilliant Ngaio Marsh ranks with Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers." ( Times Literary Supplement)
    "The finest writer in the English language of the pure, classical puzzle whodunit. Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an Empress." ( The Sun)

    Finally an excellent Marsh

    I am listening to her works from the first and have so far found most of them forgettable with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions. Final Curtain is her best so far. Memorable characters, a good setting and a good mystery. Saxon also does an excellent job with the reading of this one, not as over the top as he can be with some previous books.

    Exceptionally entertaining

    NM really was a very gifted writer and she shows all her wit and brilliant characterization ability in this tour de force. I think it’s certainly one of her best and one of my favorite novels in any genre. The narration by James Saxon is superb and perfectly complements this highly entertaining tale. Highly recommended
