Jeremy Clyde Stars as Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn in two BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatizations. Opening Night
Tensions are running high on the first night of a new play. When the leading actor is found gassed in his dressing room, it looks like suicide. It soon transpires, however, that he was widely detested, and almost everyone in the theatre had a possible motive for his murder. It's down to Inspector Alleyn to discover who acted upon their grudge.
When in Rome
Alleyn is in Rome, traveling incognito on the trail of an international drug racket. His path crosses the members of the Sebasstian Mailer's tour group, all of whom seem strangely unperturbed that their guide has disappeared in the depths of a Roman basilica. Then a body is found in an Etruscan sarcophagus, and Alleyn is very much concerned.
Michael Cochrane, David Swift, and Nick Waring are amongst the cast in these two atmospheric adaptations of novels by Ngaio Marsh.
