A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Agatha Christie called her ‘a shining light’. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the ‘true queen’ of the classic murder mystery?

First, there is a skeleton in a dinner jacket. Then a corpse in a golden aeroplane. After another body, private detective Albert Campion nearly makes a fourth…

Both the skeleton and the corpse have died with suspicious convenience for Georgia Wells, a monstrous but charming actress with a raffish entourage. Georgia’s best friend just happens to be Valentine, a top couturière and Campion’s sister. In order to protect Valentine, Campion must unravel a story of blackmail and ruthless murder.

As urbane as Lord Wimsey?as ingenious as Poirot? Meet one of crime fiction’s Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.
