Ngaio Marsh writes delightful genre mysteries in the manner of Agatha Christie. Her books from the late forties through the fifties are fun, but the later mysteries, such as this one from the 70's, are a little bit tedious. There was a little too much eccentricity in the characters, and the surprise ending, involving secret paternity and the snobbiness of the self-made upperclass, is a little much.

An eccentric estate owner, a staff of convicted murderers, a hybrid Druidic/Christmas celebration, various and sundry guests, and a corpse are the ingredients of this fun and interesting Yuletide mystery.I've read a few Ngaio Marsh books, and so far this is my favorite.

The occasion is a Christmas party hosted by Mr. Hilary Bill-Tasman, landed proprietor of Halberds Manor and authority on antiques. Attending the festivities are a number of unusual characters, several of whom are perfectly logical candidates for murderer--and one of whom will elude the most prescient reader until tracked down by the indefatigable Superintendent Roderick Alleyn, whose wife Troy innocently involved him in all the sinister goings-on in the first place.

Good Christmas-time mystery with interesting detective work.
