Artists in Crime: Inspector Roderick Alleyn #6

Artists in Crime: Inspector Roderick Alleyn #6 (Inspectr Roderick Alleyn) - Ngaio Marsh A very solid three stars. The flow of the narrative is quite stop and go which makes the way the plot moves on a bit chaotic in my book. Never the less, the plot is interesting, the reveal not so far from left field, the hints are there. I liked the introduction of Roderick's 'love interest' who is so far a strong character in her own right. It reminded me of Sayer's introduction of Harriet Vane. Which is by far one of my favorite introduction of a 'partner' for a lead character. Looking forward to read the next title in the series.
