Happy birthday, Ngaio Marsh.

Golden Age icon Dame Edith Ngaio Marsh, the pride of New Zealand and the creator of well-born inspector, later superintendent, Roderick Alleyn, was born today in 1895 (although some sources list her birthdate as 1899) and died in 1982. Some of her many novels include Death in a White Tie, Clutch of Constables, and Tied Up in Tinsel.

I'm rather partial to Artists in Crime, because of the debut of that marvelous character, painter and later Alleyn love interest Agatha Troy.
