Have you seen our weblog or our monthly book review?

Over a long career, Marsh wrote many novels starring Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard, his wife, celebrated artist Troy Alleyn, and his righthand man, affectionately known as Brer Fox. Although she started to write in 1934, her books are still fresh and delightful, and I highly recommend them. See the reviews linked to below for more information.
