Death in a White Tie - Ngaio Marsh I would say this is my favourite Marsh mystery so far as it was a quick and delightful read. I think I prefer Marsh to Christie because the story tends to elaborate more on the victim and suspects than around the detective/snoop. Detective Alleyn and his friends and family are central to the stories but as a nice aside unlike Christie's Hercule etc. Where a single character tends to dominate.If you're a Ngaio fan I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this as the characters are engaging and the mystery has enough of a twist so you aren't sure immediately who the victim will be and who the murderer is.
