Overview

Artists in Crime (Roderick Alleyn Series #6) by Ngaio Marsh

It was a bizarre pose for beautiful model Sonia Gluck-and her last. For in the draperies of her couch lay a fatal dagger, and behind her murder lies all the intrigue and acid-etched temperament of an artist's colony. Called in to investigate, Scotland Yard's Inspector Roderick Alleyn finds his own passions unexpectedly stirred by the feisty painter Agatha Troy-brilliant artist and suspected murderess.

Ngaio Marsh offers the unusual setting of an artist colony for this classic period genre mystery. She puts her cast of the usual suspects through the paces, and most of it works pretty well. The love line with Inspector Allyn and one of the artists is hopelessly implausible, but otherwise, Allyn, his mother and his associates at Scotland Yard are well etched and advance the story well. A good read for a mystery buff or for more casual readers with a dreary day in front of them.
