Publisher's Summary

Maurice Questing was left to die in a pool of boiling mud. Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn knew that any number of people could have killed him: the English exiles he'd hated, the New Zealanders he'd despised or the Maoris he'd insulted. Even the spies he'd thwarted - if he wasn't a spy himself.


What the Critics Say

"Nobody begins to touch Ngaio Marsh’s skill at creating corpses and suspects...her dialogue is a continuous delight." (New York Herald Tribune)
