One of Ngaio Marsh’s most famous murder mysteries, which introduces Inspector Alleyn to his future wife, the irrepressible Agatha Troy. It started as a student exercise, the knife under the drape, the model’s pose chalked in place. But before Agatha Troy, artist and instructor, returns to the class, the pose has been re-enacted in earnest: the model is dead, fixed for ever in one of the most dramatic poses Troy has ever seen. It’s a difficult case for Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn. How can he believe that the woman he loves is a murderess?

In the movies, it's known as a ';meet cute. But for Inspector Alleyn and Miss Agatha Troy, it's more like irritation: On the ship back to England, she finds him tedious and dull; he thinks she's a bohemian cliche. They may be destined for romance, but there's a murder in the way: No sooner has Alleyn settled in to his mother's house, eager for a relaxing end to his vacation, then he gets a call that a model has been stabbed at the artists' community down the road.

Artists in Crime book. After struggling a little with Ngaio Marsh’s previous mystery, Vintage Murder, I was pleased to discover that I enjoyed the sixth in the series, Artists in Crime, a great deal more. In Vintage Murder, Roderick Alleyn was travelling and, in this book in the series, we see him returning to the UK. On board ship he meets, and falls for, artist, Agatha Troy. Miss Troy turns out to live at Tatler’s End House, close to Lady Alleyn, in Bucks.

First published in 1938, this book focuses on a group of artists taking a class with established artist Agatha Troy.

Chief Inspector Alleyn has shown himself susceptible to female charm in earlier books. But this time he falls seriously in love. He can’t give way to his feelings, however, because he has to focus on finding out who killed the artists’ model. All the artists are suspect, including the woman he loves!

The murder method is bizarre, and Alleyn’s investigation is complicated and full of fascinating interviews with the eccentric artists. A second, especially repulsive murder deepens the horrors, but offers a few clues – so subtle that it takes Alleyn’s artistic eye to spot them.

Alleyn’s mother appears in this novel, and she’s a charmer with Victorian manners and Edwardian wit. This is my favorite Ngaio Marsh mystery so far. I’m reading the series in order.

If you've seen the PBS version, it's different. They took some artistic license with the video. This is real deal! Some intimate personal development, totally unrealistic to me but sweet, of the relationship between Alleyn and Troy. I enjoyed this one, recently put it on my kindle. I read it probably 30 years but couldn't remember how it had been wrapped up. I've started reading the Marsh/Alleyn books in order. I do find them very polite but it is more a worldview that I grew up with in the 50's-60's of courtesy and manners and standards of behavior. "Nice" people were shocked by some behaviors and found them distasteful.
These aren't hard-boiled thrillers to rush through. Instead note the social mores, the fashions, the political notes mentioned casually. Savor them and slow your life down and enjoy.

This was my first Ngaio Marsh novel, and I can't say I was super taken with it. I love Christie and Sayers and such, but something about this just failed to grab me. I didn't care for the sleuth too much, although I kind of enjoyed all the artists. The whole deal where they were trying to get down to the heart of the victim's situation and blackmail. I did guess who it was, so that's a point in its favor.

Old Ngaio Marsh fan. Had been looking for this one for a long time. Very glad to be able to get these in Kindle. In the days of paper books, you could never get all the books in a series.

This is early in the series when Alleyn first meets Troy. You can see the emergence of the angst ridden protagonist, but it never gets out of hand with Marsh: Alleyn is never dysfunctional.

The multiple characters are all well developed into possible suspects . A little romance. Ngaio's further development of Inspector Alleyn and his friend Nigel Bathgate and colleague Fox engaging the reader. The scenario proceeds naturally to a very plausible but well disguised villain.
OCARO
Ngaio Marsh delivers every time! I have read the complete canon, and every one is a gem!

Great book
I like this writer very much. I think this is one of her best books. It is the classic British mystery. One thing I didn't look is this writer has some prejudices as did Agatha Christie.
