Australian writer of science fiction and fantasy.
Enter a Murderer - Ngaio Marsh The second of the Alleyn mysteries, Enter a Murderer still finds the story's focus divided between Alleyn and the journalist Nigel Bathgate, and takes us firmly into the world Marsh clearly loves most -the stage. The mystery has an excellent and dramatic resolution, but the overall feeling is a 'down' one, and Alleyn's character - especially to someone who has read the later books - is a little off and not yet formed, and we do not really have a strong reason to care for any of the other characters. It's a story worth reading, but is far from the most powerful of the Alleyn stories.
