Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[McCaddon’s] husky voice is perfect, as usual, and her narration, timing, accents, and tone are faultless…A good tale by Marsh in her prime that will be enjoyed by her fans as well as by fans of Agatha Christie.”  Kliatt 
“[Wanda McCaddon] brings all her storytelling expertise to the complicated plot, managing to keep the numerous characters distinct and identifiable. She ably imparts a suitable accent to the French characters and also conveys a credible portrayal of an Egyptian.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Ngaio Marsh

Ngaio Marsh (1895–1982), born in New Zealand, wrote over thirty detective novels. Many of her stories had theatrical settings, as her real passion was for the theater. She was both an actress and a producer and almost single-handedly revived the New Zealand public’s interest in live theater. In 1966 she was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
