Ngaio Marsh managed an achievement no other writer has pulled off in my experience. Going into hospital for an operation, I took one of her books as reading material. It was so excruciatingly dull I gave up about a third of the way through. Staring at the ceiling was more rewarding than finding out who did it.

I can well believe money was all she had in mind.
