    Timothy Kinnit needs Albert Campion's help. He is rich, handsome and successful but his past is a mystery to him and he needs Campion to find out how it connects him to the notorious Turk Street Mile slum.

    In addition, his own illustrious adopted family has a sinister secret of his own - involving a murderous 19th-century governess - that must also be brought to life by Campion's investigations. An Albert Campion mystery.

    Allingham's always good, but this one's confusing

    Would you consider the audio edition of The China Governess to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version.

    Would you recommend The China Governess to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I enjoyed this book, although I found it the most confusing of all the Campion books. I am reading them all in order, and will grieve when they are done.

    Which character – as performed by David Thorpe – was your favorite?

    I liked Julia so much, as I find young people with firm, strong personalities and self-knowledge to be refreshing.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Might have been less confusing if I had. Yes.

    Any additional comments?

    Although "legend" has it that Allingham wrote these novels as an imitation of Dorothy Sayers, she was immensely talented. Campion is a fantastic character and the sense of atmosphere, especially over the decades, is thorough. Allingham IS as good as Sayers, and that is saying a huge amount in my book!

    David Thorpe, as always, is non-traditional and excellent.

    Couldn’t finish it.

    Seemed a departure from Alberts usual adventures and most of the characters were angry and shouting at each other. Couldn’t follow the plot. Gave up and listened to another Allingham which was much better. Maybe I’ll try it again later.

    The Good Stuff

    When you are in need of a good old British mystery this will do the trick.
