More About This Title Death and the Dancing Footman
A winter weekend ends in snowbound disaster in a novel which remains a favorite among Marsh readers. It began as an entertainment: eight people, many of them enemies, gathered for a winter weekend by a host with a love for theater. They would be the characters in a drama that he would devise. It ended in snowbound disaster. Everyone had an alibiand most a motive as well. But Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn, when he finally arrived, knew it all hung on Thomas, the dancing footman.
Ngaio Marsh was born and educated in New Zealand. Along with Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, and Dorothy L. Sayers, she was classed as one of the four original "Queens of Crime"—female British crime writers who dominated the crime fiction genre in the 1920s and 1930s.
