Death & the Dancing Footman (1941) by Ngaio Marsh is one of those Golden Age mystery stand-bys: a murder at a country house party-and in the middle of a snow storm no less. But Marsh gives the standard a slight twist. Jonathan Royal, who by his own reckoning is a stifled artist, has decided to use human beings in a drama of his own contrivance. He has deliberately invited a houseful of guests where each person is at odds with at least one other person (and sometimes more).
Death and the Dancing Footman is a detective novel by Ngaio Marsh; it is an example of the Country house mystery. The host Jonathan Royal has invited seven people for a weekend house-party. As his invited observer Aubrey Mandrake says, he has invited stark murder with the guests chosen for their antagonism to each other. Then Highfold Manor in Cloudyfold, Dorset is cut off by a snowstorm with the phone line down (although the house still has electric power, possibly from a private generator)

Beneath them, at the foot of a flight of paved steps flanked by bay trees, was a large concrete swimming-pool set in smooth lawns and overlooked by a charming eighteenth-century pavilion, now trimmed, like a Christmas card, with snow.
