Colour Scheme (Roderick Alleyn, #12) by Ngaio Marsh (9/3/20)

Ancient - "My father attended an ancient school of learning." (p 60)
Bell - He rang the bell, ordered a small whisky-and-soda and with an air of relishing his employment began a second letter. (p 12)

Collection - Down in the native reserve a collection of small brown boys milled about, squabbling. (p 58)

Commercial - “I expect,” said Mrs. Claire, “that’s only because he used to be a commercial traveller. (p 22)
Destruction or Destroyed - Had he tried to bring about Smith’s destruction, and if so, why? (p 233)
Dig - "If you can adjourn the inquest and hold things over for a little it will give me a chance to dig a bit deeper before the principals realize quite how much we know.” (p 481)
Extinct - Beyond them, across the hidden inlet, but tall enough to dominate the scene, rose the truncated cone of Rangi’s Peak, an extinct volcano so characteristically shaped that it might have been placed in the landscape by a modern artist with a passion for simplified form. (p 18)
Governor - “I shall appeal directly to the Governor-General whom I have the honour to know personally.” (p 339)
Grand - "I’m sure, sir, you’d like me to decline in the same grand style.” (p 240)

Oldest (no variations) - “He is the oldest man in New Zealand." (p 54)
Origin(s) - His conversation was full of the near-Americanisms that are part of the New Zealand dialect, but they, too, sounded dubious, and it was impossible to guess at his place of origin though he sometimes spoke of himself vaguely as a native of New South Wales. (p 47)
Period - "During this period Gaunt had quarrelled with Questing, and gone up to the main road; Simon and Smith were drinking in somebody’s car after consorting for a time with certain Maoris; while Bell, Agnes, and Barbara had gone to Gaunt’s car.” (p 389)
Remembering (no variations) - Remembering this episode, Dikon approached his employer with some misgivings. (p 315)
Restore(d) - Now this—” he looked at Barbara’s pieces of furniture, which, under the brief influence of a domestic magazine, she had painted severally in the primary colours—“this will restore me to normal in no time.” (p 197)
Rite - Many of the songs, sacred to the rites of death, are not considered suitable for public performance, but there was one they sang that night that was to be remembered with a shudder by everyone who heard it. (p 255)
Wall - The front wall of the dining-room was built up of glass panels designed to slide in grooves, but devilishly inclined to jam. (p 18)
War - As you probably know, he arrived in Australia with his Shakespearean company just before war broke out and remained there, continuing to present his repertoire of plays but handing over a very generous dollop of all takings to the patriotic funds. (p 7)

44/49

Colour Scheme (Roderick Alleyn, #12) by Ngaio Marsh (9/3/20)

Ancient - "My father attended an ancient school of learning." (p 60)
Bell - He rang the bell, ordered a small whisky-and-soda and with an air of relishing his employment began a second letter. (p 12)
Century - "In a century we have had to swallow the progress of nineteen hundred years." (p 61)
Collection - Down in the native reserve a collection of small brown boys milled about, squabbling. (p 58)
Column - His sister pointed to the personal column. (p 199)
Commercial - “I expect,” said Mrs. Claire, “that’s only because he used to be a commercial traveller. (p 22)
Destruction or Destroyed - Had he tried to bring about Smith’s destruction, and if so, why? (p 233)
Dig - "If you can adjourn the inquest and hold things over for a little it will give me a chance to dig a bit deeper before the principals realize quite how much we know.” (p 481)
Extinct - Beyond them, across the hidden inlet, but tall enough to dominate the scene, rose the truncated cone of Rangi’s Peak, an extinct volcano so characteristically shaped that it might have been placed in the landscape by a modern artist with a passion for simplified form. (p 18)
Governor - “I shall appeal directly to the Governor-General whom I have the honour to know personally.” (p 339)
Grand - "I’m sure, sir, you’d like me to decline in the same grand style.” (p 240)
Invasion - For perhaps the first time he contemplated coldly and deliberately a possible invasion of New Zealand. (p 234)
Language - “It’s not because he talks a different language or any of those things,” said Barbara hurriedly, “that I don’t like Mr. Questing". (p 22)
National - It must have been Rua, Dikon decided, who asked a member of the glee club to strike up the National Anthem on the meeting-house piano. (p 261)
Oldest (no variations) - “He is the oldest man in New Zealand." (p 54)
Origin(s) - His conversation was full of the near-Americanisms that are part of the New Zealand dialect, but they, too, sounded dubious, and it was impossible to guess at his place of origin though he sometimes spoke of himself vaguely as a native of New South Wales. (p 47)
Period - "During this period Gaunt had quarrelled with Questing, and gone up to the main road; Simon and Smith were drinking in somebody’s car after consorting for a time with certain Maoris; while Bell, Agnes, and Barbara had gone to Gaunt’s car.” (p 389)
Remembering (no variations) - Remembering this episode, Dikon approached his employer with some misgivings. (p 315)
Restore(d) - Now this—” he looked at Barbara’s pieces of furniture, which, under the brief influence of a domestic magazine, she had painted severally in the primary colours—“this will restore me to normal in no time.” (p 197)
Rite - Many of the songs, sacred to the rites of death, are not considered suitable for public performance, but there was one they sang that night that was to be remembered with a shudder by everyone who heard it. (p 255)
Wall - The front wall of the dining-room was built up of glass panels designed to slide in grooves, but devilishly inclined to jam. (p 18)
War - As you probably know, he arrived in Australia with his Shakespearean company just before war broke out and remained there, continuing to present his repertoire of plays but handing over a very generous dollop of all takings to the patriotic funds. (p 7)

Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe (9/4/20)

Caravan - Funny about X and the caravan. (p 282)
Church - ...St Thomas’s church... (p 308)
Silk - Then went on to Silk Cut Extra Mild. (p 117)
Theater - ...(children’s theatre company)... (p 77)
