    Book Description
    Little did beloved British actress Mary Bellamy know that she would be done in at her own birthday party--choked by toxic mist from the bottle of "Slaypest," a deadly insecticide.

    2 of 2 people found the following review helpful: great audio experience!, February 27, 2002 Reviewer: Maria Jette from excelsior, mn USA I'm a mystery lover, and a book reader in general, but had never tried audiobooks until a couple of weeks ago, when I bought this one for a road trip. What a thrill! This reader is a BRILLIANT actor... in terms of characterizations of the typically wide range of class accents in this sort of British murder mystery, as well as inflection in long spells of narrative, he is superb. I almost regret having heard his performance, as I've since been listening to a "Miss Silver" mystery from another company (and reader), and have been disappointed by a bland delivery and some distracting problems with audio levels. I'm going to check out EVERY audio book read by JAmes Saxon, though-- "False Scent" was spellbinding. I'm a convert to the format, and looking forward to my commutes with future Marsh/Saxon volumes. Oh yes-- the book itself is wonderful, as are all Ngaio Marsh novels. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition
