About This Item

(Colour Scheme: Roderick Alleyn #12, 1943 Little, Brown)USED. GOOD CONDITION/ NO DJ. 1943 LITTLE, BROWN FIRST EDITION. Please see our stock photos. Often regarded as her most interesting book and set on New Zealand's North Island, Ngaio Marsh herself considered this to be her best-written novel. It was a horrible death -- Maurice Questing was lured into a pool of boiling mud and left there to die. Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn, far from home on a wartime quest for German agents, knew that any number of people could have killed him: the English exiles he'd hated, the New Zealanders he'd despised or the Maoris he'd insulted. Even the spies he'd thwarted -- if he wasn't a spy himself!

Synopsis

Colour Scheme is a detective novel by Ngaio Marsh; it is the twelfth novel to feature Roderick Alleyn, and was first published in 1943. The novel takes place in New Zealand during World War II. Alleyn is working for military intelligence and is assigned to counterespionage. The plot involves suspected Nazi activity at a hot springs resort on the New Zealand coast. Alleyn incognito and going by the name Septimus Falls, must solve a gruesome murder in order to expose the spies.
