The Inspector Alleyn Mysteries: the Complete Series 1


  • DVD
    $43.62
PUBLISHED: 20th May 2009
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.
