Clutch of Constables. James Tretheway Skipper. Mrs Tretheway Cook and Stewardess. She wrote again in her book. Her companion looked attentively at her and might have been said, after her own fashion, also to make notes

Clutch of Constables. For Audrey and Guy. with love. Her companion looked attentively at her and might have been said, after her own fashion, also to make notes. She saw a figure, not exactly of fun, but of confusion.

Clutch of Constables book. This is my first time reading anything by Kiwi writer Ngaio Marsh and since it is the 25th book featuring Mrs. Alleyn, I didn't realize at first that she is normally an amateur sleuth who loves crimes because her husband happens to be a Chief Inspector. Yes, a New Zealander writing books set in England.

Clutch of Constables Ngaio Marsh For Audrey and Guy Chapter 1 – Apply Within There was nothing fancy about the Jampot, Alleyn said. The word ‘Jobs’ is entirely appropriate to his activities

Clutch of Constables Ngaio Marsh For Audrey and Guy Chapter 1 – Apply Within There was nothing fancy about the Jampot, Alleyn said. The word ‘Jobs’ is entirely appropriate to his activities. He planned carefully, left as little as possible to chance, took a satisfaction in his work and accepted, without dwelling upon them, the occupational hazards which it involved.

Written by Ngaio Marsh, Audiobook narrated by James Saxon. Murder, blackmail and drug dealing on the Tiber combine in one of Ngaio Marsh’s liveliest and most evocative novels. When their guide disappears mysteriously in the depths of a Roman basilica, the members of Mr. Sebastian Mailer’s tour group seem strangely unperturbed. But when a body is discovered in an Etruscan sarcophagus, Superintendent Alleyn, in Rome incognito on the trail of an international drug racket, is very much concerned.

Alleyn said, I was on my way to Chicago and from there to San Francisco. We were setting up a joint plan of action with . to cope with an international blow-up in the art-forgery world. pretty certain, though not positive, that the Jampot was well in the phoney picture trade and that the same group was combining it with a two-way drug racket. My wife’s letters to me from her river cruise missed me in New York and were forwarded to Chicago and thence to San Francisco. On reading them I put through a call to the Yard.

Ngaio Marsh was a producer and novelist. She was born on April 23, 1899 in Christchurch, New Zealand. She attended St. Mary's College and Canterbury University. Marsh worked in the theater acting, producing, and even painting scenery. Marsh later returned to New Zealand and produced plays for a Shakespearean repertory company. She also worked with the Drama Department of Canterbury University. During World War II, she served in the New Zealand Red Cross Transport Unit

We do love a man in a uniform, but the "Constables" in question are not policemen but paintings the landscapes, specifically, of the 19th-century painter John Constable. Agatha Troy (the artist wife, you ll remember, of Inspector Alleyn) has a special fondness for Constable s work, so she jumps at the chance to take a river-cruise through "Constable Country" in the east of England.

Love this book. What makes it unique for a Roderick Allyn book is the fact that the main character is his artist wife Troy as she departs on a spontaneous river trip, while he is on another continent at a conference. Good characterization, descriptive explanations of the river trip. The title is so perfect and you will find out that a constable is not necessary a policeman. Think this falls into the category of one of my favorite books of the series.

This is a series I have greatly enjoyed. It is the style of mid last century British writers. It is interesting that his painter wife is not listed in the cast of characters yet she is truly the center of all action.

Yes, it's ok but not up to Marsh's usual high standard.

A nice mystery.

Good to revisit N. Marsh.

Entertaining, easy read. I'm fond of the author, and this didn't disappoint.

Love it, one of my favorite Inspector Alleyn mysteries!
Ngaio Marsh's main character for most of the mystery may be a bit too precious for some tastes, but the reader can file that under artistic eccentricities. Once her husband, Inspector Roderick Alleyn, physically arrives on the scene and his wife leaves it, the story's "voice" grows more secure. Perhaps the real star of the book is the river cruise the group takes, highlighting the English countryside in a vacation many may consider taking now.
Does it really matter who dun it?
