Overview

Final Curtain (Roderick Alleyn Series #14) by Ngaio Marsh

A delicious, classic country-house mystery. Sir Henry Ancred, a celebrated Shakespearian actor, has arranged to have his portrait painted by Agatha Troy wife of Inspector Roderick Alleyn. She’s rather glad to be stepping out of Alleyn's shadow, and when Ancred is killed at his own birthday party, Troy tries sleuthing on her own. But she’s got a family full of suspects to contend with, and is pleased at last to hand things over to Alleyn.

She wrote 32 mystery novels between 1934 and 1982, earning her widespread acclaim and comparisons to Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, and Margery Allingham. In addition to writing, she pursued her passion for theater and directed a number of plays as a member of the University of Canterbury Drama Society. She also wrote plays, essays, and an autobiography titled Black Beech and Honeydew. In 1966 she was named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for her accomplishments in the arts, and in 1978 she was named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America.

Spoiler alert! Don't read last chapter at bedtime. Has a very disturbing scene.

It was great to have the book back in England and have Agatha Troy as a big part of it. Can't be disappointed with Ngaio Marsh anyway.
