I almost skipped reading this one because the setting was not in England. It is undoubtably the very best of her work.

James Saxon has recorded a number of Ngaio marsh books. He always starts overdramatizing and camping up the characters to an alarming amount and his accents are so thick you can hardly understand the words. Then he eventually settles down and does well
One of Ngaio Marsh's strongest whodunits set in New Zealand on a sheep ranch. A truly gruesome account of the hiding of the victim's body and a fantastic evocation of NZ in the forties.
James Saxon is the perfect narrator for the series.
A good story, unfortunately marred by unsympathetic narration. james Saxon has a great 'posh' accent for Alleyn, but the rest of the characters sounded camp or over the top, and definitely not New Zealand. I won't be listening to another James Saxon reading.
