An Albert Campion mystery.
In a masterpiece of storytelling, Margery Allingham sends her elegant and engaging detective Albert Campion into the eccentric Palinode household, where there have been two suspicious deaths.
And if poisoning were not enough, there are also anonymous letters, sudden violence and a vanishing coffin. Meanwhile the Palinodes go about their nocturnal business and Campion dices with danger in his efforts to find the truth.
"Miss Allingham is one of the few writers who can deal with art. Both her passions and her patterns are beautiful, accurate and serene" (Daily Telegraph)
"Margery Allingham has worked her way up to a worthy place among the tiny hierarchy of front-rankers in the detective world" (Tatler)
"Margery Allingham deserves to be rediscovered" (P.D. James)

Good Story Spoiled for Me
In my view only, one of the best Albert Campion Story's totally spoiled by the reading
I have already purchased another Albert Campion by this reader as it is another favourite. I should have waited!
Not really, the whole book just sort of carries you off on the merry-go-round of strange characters
Sorry but I will have to stick with the abridged version which was very well read by Philip Franks
