A lively British mystery from "one of the greatest mid-20th-century practitioners of the detective novel" (Alexander McCall Smith). Strange things are happening in Saltey. The little village on the Essex coast is invaded by bikers and a parade of peculiar visitors, a newly released prisoner is rumored to be in the area, Mr. Lugg has bought a bungalow there, the Saltey Demon is on the loose again . . . and Albert Campion is looking for the disappearance of thousands of pounds of gold coinage. This is Margery Allingham's final novel featuring her famous gentleman sleuth, overflowing with evil arch-villains and classic thuggery against the atmospheric backdrop of postwar England. "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 "Margery Allingham stands out like a shining light." —Agatha Christie
