I love James Saxon reading Ngaio Marsh. I have every Marsh he's ever read that audible offers. However, Death and the Dancing Footman is not my favorite of his readings, which is why I thought I would have Philip Franks reading of it, as Philip Franks is a WONDERFUL reader and I hope that he will do every single one of Marsh's books for us in the near future. This, however, is NOT Philip Franks reading, it is James Saxon reading . Buyer beware.

Once again, she had me hooked all the way to the end wondering who did it and exactly how? A peculiar and unsettling set-up this time, tinged with wartime jitters, with lots of snow and a number of unlikable suspects. The dancing footman proves to be a key witness, but the few moments he witnesses are hard to piece together even after they are recapped over and over. This is okay, of course, for the story is meant to be intricate in that way. And despite the malevolent intentions of many, I loved it.
The story rambles on from the beginning as do other books in the series, introducing characters and muddying the waters. So far, so usual but Alleyn appears very late in the proceedings and plays, I think, a lesser part than previously. The story is still a good one and the confusions are not resolved until the last few minutes but I didn't feel it was quite as good as the earlier books.

Not the advertised narrator. This is narrated by James Saxon. Audible appear unable to correct this despite repeated complaint.
