Publisher's Summary

After an evening of friendly darts and vintage brandy, a distinguished, although amorous, barrister is in no condition to drive - or walk. The poor fellow's expired, leaving one less lawyer in the world. Everyone in the cozy pub swears that the untimely death was caused by a dart that punctured the victim's finger. But to Inspector Roderick Alleyn, the "accident" was really a case of murder.

Classic Detective Fiction in Gorgeous Setting

Nadia May's appreciation for and rendition of Ngaio Marsh's gemlike prose make listening to this clever, exciting mystery a true delight. Great plot, colorful characters, a splash of passion, a pervading sense of time and place, and a few downright gruesome details = a classic of its type, 20th century British detective fiction set in that most endearing of places, a coastal English village.
