Enter a Murderer

Enter a Murderer by Ngaio Marsh (Geoffrey Bles, 1935); audiobook read by James Saxon (BBC, 1995) Inspector Alleyn presents as an intriguing juxtaposition of acerbic professional and chummy old boy. His offsider, the journalist Nigel Bathgate, is an adequate Watson, but the mystery—an actor’s on-stage murder—loses something in being told from a blend of third-person viewpoints.
