Publisher's Summary

Lord Pastern fired his revolver. The figure in the spotlight fell, and the coup-de-theatre had become murder. Could Inspector Alleyn believe Pastern had let hatred of his future son-in-law go too far? Or would the tangle of jealousies and blackmail among the guests reveal another murderer?

I love this author and narrator.

These two make a perfect pair. I am afraid to figure out how many books I haven't listened to. It will be a sad day when I come to the end of the list! If you like nonviolent detective novels, you cannot do any better!
