For one unlucky Member of Parliament, a simple visit to the hospital (the “nursing home” of the title) proves fatal. But as Inspector Alleyn will discover, any number of people had reason to help the gentleman to his just reward, including the sour surgeon, his besotted nurse, a resentful wife, and a cabinet full of political rivals.

Enjoyable dive into Ngaio Marsh. First read of her novels. Less stuffy than Christie's characters. A reasonable shorter classic mystery police procedural. I don't feel I know the main protagonist very well, Inspector Alleyn but I definitely will read another Marsh to see about him. The pot was complicated enough with many players. However, Marsh did a fine job keeping the characters described so you did not forget who is who.

Sir Derek O'Callaghan is in the middle of pushing through an important bill when he becomes ill with appendicitis. The surgery appears to be a success, but he dies soon after. It sounds like an accident, but his widow is convinced that his enemies got him. The police aren't convinced - until the post-mortem. And after they begin to invesigate, they find no shortage of enemies to choose from. Inspector Alleyn is on the job. I really enjoyed this one and was stumped as to how it was done. Fox was also in this one, and I like him.CMB

Inspector Alleyn is a bit of a jerk though.
