Description

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.

Critiques

"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)

Once again Allingham draws a complete picture of a past time

We're in the post-WWII era now, but the victim's family refuses to admit that times have changed. What hasn't changed is the delightful back-and-forth between Campion and his curmudgeonly upwardly-mobile gentleman's gentleman, Lug. Introduces a new member of the police whom I hope we meet again. As usual, Thorpe brings the disparate cast of characters brilliantly to life.

Plot unnecessarily devious and complicated. Narrator’s accents difficult to understand

Other than that, I always love Allingham and Campion. Explanation at the end not entirely clear.

One for the ages

This is one of my favorite books, full of color and character and plot. The narrator seems to be having as much fun burrowing into these wonderful characters as I have every time
I re-listen.
