Summary

Albert Campion is summoned to the village of Kepesake to investigate a particularly distasteful death. The body turns out to be that of Pig Peters, freshly killed five months after his own funeral.
Soon other corpses start to turn up, just as Peter's body goes missing. It takes all Campion's coolly incisive powers of detection to unravel the crime.
Margery Allingham was a prolific writer who sold her first story at age eight and published her first novel before turning 20. Allingham went on to become one of the preeminent writers who helped bring the detective story to maturity in the 1920s and 1930s.

Pig, disapointing



Main character quite annoying, arrogant, and the pig of it all, rarely do I ever get so irritated by a book. disappointed as margery allingham's hide my eyes was excellent. Just couldn't stand the main detective, didn't finish it. Other people liked it so maybe stuck up English toffs grate with me more than the average.

The most awful narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The book itself is great, I have read it in paperback, but the narrator reads it in the style of a third rate actor playing Lady Bracknell. His accent is all wrong and I kept expecting him to say 'a haaaaand baaag' at any moment. Dreadful, especially as the books in this series read by Francis Matthews are brilliantly done. What a shame the rest are ruined by this narrator.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story itself is great, go read the printed version
