Andrea K Höst

Australian writer of science fiction and fantasy.
A Grave Mistake - Ngaio Marsh A solid page-turner, again revolving like other Marsh novels around an older woman. Although Sybil Foster's faults revolve around vanity and selfishness, she did not seem to be a particularly unkind or cruel woman (the will made in a temperament aside). She is not hated, yet she is signally unloved.The conclusion of the story is unusual in capturing the murderer, but leaving a deliberately sour tang with other story threads.
