Pyramid N3184 Death Of A Fool NF
Death Of A Fool
By Ngaio Marsh
Strangers were definitely not welcome at the South Mardian Sword Dance. Every winter solstice for centuries, men performed this heathen ritual sacrifice in the courtyard of ancient Mardian Castle. No one quite remembered what it meant, with its flashing swords, its incantations, its exotic fertility symbols.
This year, someone was murdered during the dance, and an invasion of strangers led by Inspector Roderick Alleyn upset nearly everyone.
As he delved into the bizarre happenings, Alleyn encountered some dangerously uncooperative witnesses, and learned a surprising number of things about English folk dancing - such as how to make a corpse dance!
