Listing Detail Tabs

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.
