This is a Roderick Alleyn Mystery – though he is in disguise until almost the end of the book. The plot is fairly unbelievable, but it was good fun and made a light hearted read. All about spies, bullion, and assorted exiles in the back of beyond in New Zealand. The murderer uses boiling hot mud pools to kill – and no-one seems to be guilty.
Other reviews state that this is one of Ngaio Marsh's best written novels. Having not read many others I could not say, but I did enjoy it.
