A man dies with his hand on a radio dial. A disguised aristocrat finds murder at the opening night of a play. A cryptogram produces death in an English churchyard. These are just a few of the situations that confront Inspector Roderick Alleyn and other colorful characters created by Ngaio Marsh.
Death on the Air and Other Stories serves equally as the perfect introduction to Ngaio Marsh and her creation, Inspector Roderick Alleyn, or as a nostalgic journey for their many fans. The collection includes ten short stories, a television screenplay for the series Crown Court, and, as a postscript, a letter written by the author.
