Publisher's Summary

It was planned as an act of charity: a new piano for the parish hall, an amusing play to finance the gift. The question now under bitter discussion is, who shall play the overture?

Though Eleanor Prentice wins, on the night of the performance, she cannot play. Miss Campanula steps triumphantly into the breach - a chord was is, a shot rings out, and Miss Campanula is dead, shot between the eyes. A case of sinister infatuation for the brilliant Chief Detective-Inspector Alleyn.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who likes a "cozy" mystery. Well written, in typical Ngaio Marsh style.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roderick Alleyn, of course. The urbane and insightful detective.


    What about Anton Lesser’s performance did you like?

    I've enjoyed his film performances so much that I was eager to listen to his performances as a narrator. I was not disappointed. He is wonderful to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions, but it was a nice relaxing listen that kept me guessing.
