Publisher's Summary

Murder, blackmail and drug dealing on the Tiber combine in one of Ngaio Marsh's liveliest and most evocative novels.

When their guide disappears mysteriously in the depths of a Roman basilica, the members of Mr. Sebastian Mailer's tour group seem strangely unperturbed. But when a body is discovered in an Etruscan sarcophagus, Superintendent Alleyn, in Rome incognito on the trail of an international drug racket, is very much concerned....

    "Can't go wrong with Ngaio Marsh"

    Very unique plot. You are left pulling for the murderer. I enjoyed the novelty of the plot and the Roman location.
