Teaser Tuesday: Death in a White Tie



He had placed his chair carefully, leaving a space between himself and the left-hand arm of the sofa. Into this space the shadowy figure now moved.

-- Death in a White Tie by Ngaio Marsh, one of the Queens of Crime from the Golden Age of mysteries. I need to get a list of her novels posted because she is a new favorite of mine.

This is the seventh book in Marsh's Inspector Roderick Alleyn series. It was first published in 1938. I've only read one other book in the series, Death at the Bar, which I thought was terrific. Normally, I read a series in order, but there are so many in this one and I do not have them all, so I am reading them as I come across them.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

I like it when people post "old school" books! Mine is a brand-new one, however, "New Roads to Hell," by Thomas Deja. http://eyesandearsblog.blogspot.com/2013/09/teaser-tuesday_24.html

One of these days I am going to have to read something by this author, as I've seen several mentions this past year. I am reading a classic this week myself: Oliver Twist
