I am in the midst of a job change therefore not feeling up to reading anything heavy Fortunately I was able to pick up a few mysteries the old fashioned English ones where the murder takes place at a country mansion and everyone including the police treat it as a sort of intellectual puzzle rather than the gory and gritty American police procedurals to help me through this periodNgaio Marsh is one of those elderly English lady writers well she s a New Zealander but English in spirit for whom murder is the perfect afternoon cup of tea like Agatha Christie Dorothy Sayers and P D James Her sleuth Inspector Roderick Alleyn is however much conventional than your usual eccentric detective he also does not keep everything close to his chest until the final reveal That said he is a sharp individual and his detection process is as engrossing as any of the othersIn the village of South Mardian the Dance of the Five Sons is performed at winter solstice a leftover from a pagan past In this mumming play the father the fool is beheaded by his sons and resurrected miraculously at the end while a hobby horse called Crack and a hermaphroditic figure named Betty prance around Here the father is played by the village blacksmith William Andersen popularly known as The Guiser and the five sons are all played by his own sons The Betty is the local clergyman s son Ralph Stein and Crack is Simon Begg son of the grocer turned petrol station owner The village doctor Otterly plays the fiddle and the whole drama is enacted on the grounds of the Mardian Castle in front of the redoubtable nonagenarian Dame Alice Mardian To spice things up there is also Camilla Campion the pretty daughter of William Andersen s prodigal daughter and the love interest of Ralph and Mrs Bunz the German immigrant folklorist who is an unwelcome intruder on the scene The dance goes on as planned until the very last scene when the supposed resurrection does not take place On closer examination they find that the old man has really been decapitatedOf course it seems that almost everyone has a motive for murder The prime suspect is Ernie the Guiser s last son who is not uite right in the head his dad has killed his old dog the previous day and prevented him from enacting the coveted role of the fool by refusing to step aside But then Ralph also has a motive as the old man was dead against his marrying his granddaughter His son Chris in love with the pub owner s daughter Trixie also has a grouse against his father as he is against the match And lastly Simon Begg can also be added to the list of suspects because he wanted to convert the smithy into a garage cum service station to which idea the sons are amenable but the blacksmith dead againstEnter Roderick Alleyn As mysteries go this is only average I guessed half of it but the way the murder happened was a surprise and on hindsight entirely logical and possible But as I said earlier it is indeed a pleasure to read these cosy whodunits the writing is fluent and beautiful the English of a bygone era no four letter words sprinkled about the characters sympathetically and humorously portrayed and the story perfectly planned and rounded offRecommended for all classic mystery lovers The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance in the midst of a job change therefore not feeling up to reading anything heavy Fortunately I was able to
