PUBLISHED: 7th November 2012
ANNOTATION:
Shooting, stabbing, poison... there are many ways to commit crime, but there's only one man who can solve it: Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn. The younger son of a titled Buckinghamshire family, Roderick Alleyn was educated at Eton and joined the CID from the diplomatic service. His background enables him to move freely in all classes of society, an undoubted advantage when dealing with Government ministers and the aristocracy. To his friends, he is that nice chap, Alleyn - a chap with a sense of humour and more edge to him than meets the eye. To his colleague, Inspector Fox, he is a real professional, as loyal to Fox as Fox is to Alleyn. Inspector Alleyn is the creation of New Zealand writer, Dame Ngaio Marsh, who has been hailed as 'the queen of the straight crime novel'. She wrote over 30 internationally best-selling Alleyn novels before she died in 1982. These five classic murder mysteries are set in the stately homes, London ballrooms and Devon fishing villages if post-war England. Filmed in London, the Cotswolds, the West Country and Cambridge. DISC 1 1. A MAN LAY DEAD What sinister connection lies between a stolen silver chalice, an ornate medieval dagger and a murder in a stately home? Alleyn thinks he knows the answer, but he has fallen in love with Agatha Troy and the chief suspect is her uncle. 2. THE NURSING HOME MURDER A prominent Cabinet minister dies from an injection on the operating table. But who administered the lethal dose and why? DISC 2 3. FINAL CURTIN When a grand old man of the theatre announces he is to marry a young and glamorous beauty, someone in his family reacts violently to being disinherited. 4. DEATH AT THE BAR In the picturesque fishing village of Ottercombe, the peace of The Plume and Feathers Inn has been well and truly ruffled. An eminent barrister has been poisoned with cyanide meant for the rats. DISC 3 5. DEATH IN A WHITE TIE A blackmailer is at large amongst the debutantes and chaperons of the new London season. Alleyn knows that something is up and has planted his friend, Lord Robert Gospell, at the scene. But someone else gets there first. 1990 PILOT ARTISTS IN CRIME When her naked body is found at Tatlers End, skewered to the bed upon which she posed only hours before, the Phoenix Art Group all come under suspicion.
