Young Ricky Alleyn has come to the picturesque fishing village of Deep Cove to write. Though the sleepy little town offers few diversions, Ricky manages to find the most distracting one of all: murder. For in a muddy ditch, he sees a dead equestrienne whose last leap was anything but an accident. And when Ricky himself disappears, the case becomes a horse of a different color for his father, Inspector Roderick Alleyn.More
"With the deft touch of a master, Marsh paints her highly visual English countryside sets and charming, gracious characters....Nadia May is unfaltering in carrying off this wonderful work which, in its simplicity, is a throwback to a less complicated, more gently paced period." (AudioFile)

Detective Fiction that Never Disappoints
I probably would, because the story is reliable Ngaio Marsh: well-plotted, funny, and above all filled with wonderful characters.
I liked the relationship between Detective Roderick Alleyn and his grown son.
She did a pretty good job with accents and so forth, but I'm afraid I love the other narrator of Marsh's books, James Saxon, too much to give her the highest marks. Plus the quality of the recording was not the best.
Oh, no! It's much too long for that!
James Saxon rocks.
