"Allingham has that rare gift in a novelist, the creation of characters so rich and so real that they stay with the reader forever." —Sara Paretsky World War II is limping to a close and private detective Albert Campion has just returned from years abroad on a secret mission. Relaxing in his bath before rushing back to the country, and to the arms of his wife, Amanda, Campion is disturbed when his servant, Lugg, and a lady of unmistakably aristocratic bearing appear in his flat carrying the corpse of a woman. The reluctant Campion is forced to put his powers of detection to work as he is drawn deeper into the case, and into the eccentric Caradocs household, dealing with murder, treason, grand larceny, and the mysterious disappearance of some very valuable art. "Margery Allingham deserves to be rediscovered." —P.D. James "Margery Allingham was one of the greatest mid-20th-century practitioners of the detective novel." —Alexander McCall Smith
