Publisher's Summary

Albert Campion sets out to plumb the secrets of Saltey, an ancient hamlet on the Essex marshes. Once the haunt of smugglers, now it hides a secret rich and mysterious enough to trap all who enter - and someone in the village is willing to terrorise, murder, and raise the very devil to keep that secret to themselves.

Only bettered if unabridged

I love Margery Allingham's crime novels. They're thoroughly contemporary even though they're now vintage. She has a keen ear for dialogue and a great sense of the ridiculous. Also a sense of place. Philip Franks does a fantastic job of this, and its always clear who is speaking. This could only be bettered by being unabridged - although this is well-pruned so it still makes sense. So much good stuff is lost when it's abridged!

Another great recording

I really love this series of recordings and this one is another great addition. Narrator is brilliant and the story really comes to life. The only thing that rankles is his american accent but then that's only because it isn't what I had envisaged. I wish they'd dramatise this one on television.
