Opinion

From Library Staff

Marsh's books contain many key elements -- including an aristocratic series sleuth, enclosed circle of suspects, and an absence of graphic violence and language -- found in mysteries written during the Golden Age of Crime, but Marsh put her own distinct stamp on the genre. -Novelist
