Publisher's Summary

A classic Ngaio Marsh mystery thriller combining drugs and sacrifice.
High in the mountains stands the magnificent Saracen fortress, home of the mysterious Mr. Oberon, leader of a coven of witches.
It is not the historic castle, however, that intrigues Roderick Alleyn, on holiday with his family, but the suspicion that a huge drugs ring operates from within its ancient portals. But before the holiday is over, someone else has stumbled upon the secret. And Mr. Oberon decides his strange and terrible rituals require a human sacrifice....

One of the best I have read so far.

Where does Spinsters in Jeopardy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the very best Naigo Marsh yet. I am reading them in order and this one is exceptional.

What other book might you compare Spinsters in Jeopardy to and why?

A Surfeit of Lampreys, an earlier Inspector Alleyn story.

Have you listened to any of Ric Jerrom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Solid and engaging, as always.

Disappointing, story line weak and far fetched… empty words ..far short of her usual standard.
