Full Cast Dramatisations.
Inspector Alleyn Mysteries.
Jeremy Clyde stars as Inspector Alleyn in these full-cast BBC Radio dramatisations of four thrilling Ngaio Marsh short stories.
In 'A Man Lay Dead', a game of murder is sabotaged by a member of a secret society who uses it for other purposes.
In 'A Surfeit of Lampreys', the Lamprey family is in dire financial straits. They call upon Uncle Gabriel and his witchcraft-dabbling wife for help - but when Gabriel refuses he is almost killed.
In 'Opening Night', a leading actor is found gassed in his dressing room. It looks like suicide, until it transpires that he was widely detested. Inspector Alleyn quickly realises that almost everyone in the theatre had a motive for his murder.
'When In Rome' finds Inspector Alleyn joining a group of highly suspicious tourists on a visit to a Roman catacomb. And the corpse he finds in an ancient sarcophagus has been very recently murdered.
