Publisher's Summary

When murder upsets the creative tranquility of an artists' colony, Scotland Yard sends in its most famous investigator. And what begins as a routine case turns out to be the most momentous of Roderick Alleyn's career. For before he can corner the killer, his heart is captured by one of the suspects, the flashing-eyed painter Agatha Troy, who has nothing but scorn for the art of detection.


What the Critics Say

"Artists in Crime is Miss Marsh's best....Her touch is light, without lapsing into the facetious, her characterization excellent; her plot neat and precise." (Spectator)

Loved it.

I've become enamored with Nagio Marsh having stumbled into listening to her books. If you like a good mystery with likeable characters and just the right number of clues, then you will like this book.

Period piece

I didn't realize this was written in the 1930s. Mea culpa. It's vaguely interesting as a period piece, but it's not a great mystery or a great character study. I suppose it's almost good at both.
