A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Agatha Christie called her ?a shining light?. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the 'true queen' of the classic murder mystery?
Fact catches up with fiction when the secret of telepathic communication is discovered. But the device at the centre of the mystery is in the possession of two schoolboys and whether they stole it or invented it, there are powerful interests who will kill to get hold of it. Private detective Albert Campion faces as deadly a challenge as any in his career.
As urbane as Lord Wimsey?as ingenious as Poirot? Meet one of crime fiction?s Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.
"Margery Allingham stands out like a shining light. Everything she writes has a definite shape...each book has its own separate and distinctive background" (Agatha Christie)
"Miss Allingham has a strong, well controlled sense of humour, a power of suggesting character with a few touches and an excellent English style. She has a sense of the fantastic, and is never dull" ( Times Literary Supplement)
"The real queen of crime" ( Guardian)
