Ah, I love getting into communities on the ground floor! I found this by chance, and am so happy about it! None of my friends seem to know about Ngaio Marsh, which does make it difficult to have discussions about plots and characters.

My name is Erin and I've been a fan of Ms. Marsh's books since high school, which was *mumblemumble* years ago. ;)

My first introduction to the wonderful Roderick Alleyn and Company was in Dead Water. I love intelligent characters, and Alleyn fit the bill perfectly. I scoured bookstores to find more books and was completely hooked after reading Artists in Crime. The relationship between Alleyn and Troy is just so wonderful. And Fox is a perfect foil for Alleyn.

Looking forward to having some fun discussions about the books (I am sad to say, I haven't seen the PBS programs) and getting to know you!

Hi Erin! Welcome! I'm Jeannie. I hope you'll forgive the late greeting. I've been out of town the last couple of days, enjoying the fourth of July weekend. :)

Dead Water is one of the few novels I've read so far. Along with Artists in Crime and Photo Finish. I'm slowly but surely making a collection and engaging in that scouring you spoke of. ;-)
Hi, Jeannie! No worries at all. I hope you had a nice holiday. :)

I just picked up Photo Finish, but haven't read it yet. I don't know if you do much shopping at, but I found about a dozen of her books for sale there- around $6.99 each- and they were eligible for the 4-for-3 sale (buy 3, get the 4th free). Might be a nice way to stock up on a few titles.
Yay! Another Alleyn fan! When I've got some spare time (ha! chance would be a fine thing) I'm planning to do some fanart, which I will link to here.

Fave books: Artists in Crime, Death in a White Tie, Clutch of Constables.
