    1. Just a Christmas re-read of Tied Up In Tinsel, on of my favourite late Ngaio Marsh whodunnits.Xmas at Halbards, just a small gathering, including Det Ch Insp Roderick Alleyn's wife there to paint the host's portrait. But the five servants are all released murderers. The snow envelops the house and grounds. When the Druid in the Xmas party procession disappears, and a blood-stained poker is found Luckily, Alleyn arrives back from abroad to meet his wife.Lovely stuff!
