Death at the Bar book. Wanda McCaddon does an excellent narration and this Golden Age mystery While I knew that I had read this entry in the Inspector Alleyn series, as I have read all the Marsh books on my shelves at some point in the past 35 years, when I saw the audiobook on Hoopla & read the blurb it didn't sound familiar.

Ngaio marsh series: Roderick Alleyn. In this, the first of Marsh's justifiably famous theatre-mysteries, Inspector Roderick Alleyn has been invited to an opening night by his journalist friend Nigel Bathgate. In the play, two characters quarrel and then struggle for a gun, with predictably sad results. Even sadder, on this particular performance, the gun was not, in fact, loaded with blanks.

Dame Ngaio Marsh DBE (/ˈnaɪ. Marsh is known as one of the "Queens of Crime", along with Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Margery Allingham. She is known primarily for her character Inspector Roderick Alleyn, a gentleman detective who works for the Metropolitan Police (London).

Death at the Bar is a 1940 novel by Ngaio Marsh which was adapted for television in 1993 as part of the Inspector Alleyn Mysteries. The title is a pun on the legal term the bar, and the public house in which much of the story takes place. It is set in the late 1930s. Tied Up in Tinsel ra-27. Death at the Dolphin. Christmas time in an isolated country house and, following a flaming row in the kitchen, there's murder inside. When a much disliked visiting servant disappears without trace after playing Santa Claus, foul play is at once suspected - and foul play it proves to be. Only suspicion falls not on the staff but on the guests, all so unimpeachably respectable that the very thought of murder in connection with any of them seems almost heresy. The restoration of a bombed-out London theatre ends in violent death -" and one of Marsh-™s most vivid and dramatic novels.

The poor fellow's expired, leaving one less lawyer in the world. Called in to investigate the alleged accident, Inspector Roderick Alleyn wonders about the rules of this friendly bar game. While the barflies swear that the untimely death was caused by a dart that punctured the victim's finger, Alleyn finds the pub full of motives for murder.

The scene is an isolated country inn. Three friends — a lawyer, an actor and an artist — go there for a holiday having been there before. The lawyer, Luke Waterman, is a bit of a heckler and he irritates the star darts player of the pub. He is subsequently struck by a dart and soon after dies of cyanide poisoning. It seems impossible to prove how the poison was introduced.

Chief Inspector Alleyn of Scotland Yard is called in. He quickly launches into endless interrogations. The solution of the crime depends on personalities on the one hand — and equally heavily on logistics. Where people stood at critical moments is very important.

The red herrings are especially strong in this book. The clues are peculiar. Death at the Bar was first published in 1940. The complexity of the plot, the cleverness and wit of the gentleman detective, the quirky characters, and the fair play structure of the mystery make this book quintessential Golden Age.

Inheritances, romantic rivalry, and political fanaticism vie for the reader’s attention to supply a possible motive.

It took me a while to warm up to this book, but when I did, I liked it very much.

Marsh does it again - her ability to realistically weave lots of characters into the suspects list while keeping the whodunit reasonable is astounding. This suspenseful and satisfying murder mystery takes place in a quaint fishing village, a backdrop that well serves her ability to capture the mood of natural settings like a painter with words. At the very least, characters are realistic. At best, they are complex with intriguing personalities, and undergo change over the course of the book. I didn't get this one right, which colors my enjoyment on a first read. I also found the pace to be a bit slow at times. Quaint and beautiful setting balances out complicated and suspenseful mechanics of the murder mystery.

Ngaio Marsh can always be counted on to deliver a well-written book.

As a longtime fan of Ngaio Marsh I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting this story despite it's age, the author rarely disappoints.

I can't say why I was disappointed without giving away too much of the story.

Not the best in the series, but I enjoy them all. She is a good author
Jaiarton
Not one of her best.
A few in-text errors mar this edition. Otherwise, delightful as Nagaio Marsh so often is.
