    This was a very enjoyable revisit with Roderick Alleyn's son Ricky The last time we saw him he was six years old Now he's twenty one and trying to find his own way as a hopeful writer of fiction My favorite parts were his interactions with his father and godfather Inspector Fox who are both anxious to keep Ricky out of their investigation eve

Few diversions Ricky manages to find the most distracting one of all murder For in a muddy ditch he sees a dead euestrienne whose last leap was One of the last of Marsh s Inspector Alleyn novels 32 novels over an almost fifty year writing career Marsh along with Christie Sayers and Allingham were the Grand Dames of twentieth century crime novelists A well written well told story I ve not read any of her other novels but this one seems as good a place to start as any other though the whole series follows the career and marriage of Alleyn There is a nice little appendix telling the story of how Marsh came to start writing crime novels and how she came up with Inspector Alleyn pronounced Allen
