Black As He's Painted

Black As He's Painted (Roderick Alleyn, #28) - Ngaio Marsh A cleverly constructed mystery, populated by Marsh's usual fine range of eccentrics, business-like coppers, and exceedingly unpleasant people. The plot revolves around an equivalent of South Africa post-apartheid. Marsh deals reasonably well with race, though the attitude she takes toward it (that there are racial differences which are more than skin-deep) is one which perhaps sits uncomfortably with more modern beliefs.
