Tied Up in Tinsel is the twenty-seventh novel to feature Roderick Alleyn and was first published in 1972. (This is a 2015 edition.)
The novel takes place at a country house in England over the course of a few days during the Christmas season. Holed up at a manor estate for Christmas, Troy Alleyn is to paint the owner's portrait and, while she is there, view the Druid Christmas pageant.
Along with a pack of eccentric guests, Troy enjoys the festivities – until one of the pageant's players mysteriously disappears into the snowy night. Did the hired help – each a paroled murderer from the nearby prison – have a deadly hand in this Christmas conundrum? Inspector Roderick Alleyn arrives to join his wife in finding the lost man – and unraveling the glaring truth from the glittering tinsel.
Another stellar Ngaio Marsh outing.
