Two Ngaio Marsh mysteries
In "A Man Lay Dead" a game of "murders" at Sir Hubert Handesley's country house party becomes far too realistic for anyone's liking. First a guest arrives with a dangenerously lethal dagger and then, when the gong sounds to announce the start of the game, the victim plays dead in a very convincing manner. In the second play, "A Surfeit of Lampreys", the aristocratic Lampreys are charming, but penniless, so a visit from the wealthy head of them family is greatly anticipated. However, their Uncle Gabriel isn't persuaded to part with his money, and a row ensues. When a body is found in the lift, leading to the Lampreys' flat, Chief Inspector Alleyn finds a family immersed in hidden secrets and intrigue.
