Clutch of Constables

Clutch of Constables - Ngaio Marsh A Troy book, which is an advantage, but I wasn't enamoured of the 'giving a lecture' structure - perhaps I have some difficulty believing Alleyn would discuss his wife in such detail.Again a book dealing with a spinster-of-a-problematic-age, this one using the not uncommon plot device of a person who has heard or witnessed something, and desperately tries to pass the information on, but is delayed from doing so long enough for her to be killed. While I can understand Troy finding our problematic spinster a bore and wanting to avoid her, in this case she came off in a bad light for me, because she was well aware that said spinster was unusually distressed and seemed frightened.
