"Margery Allingham has worked her way up to a worthy place among the tiny hierarchy of front-rankers in the detective world" (Tatler)

"The real queen of crime" (Guardian)

    "An enjoyable entry in the series"

    I love the era just before WWI and between WWI and WWII. I had read most of the Albert Campion Books years ago but this was a new one for me. The narration was interesting....I'm still not sure about the "voice" used for Albert but it might have grown on me! The mix of characters was delightful. I did figure out who the baddie was early but it didn't take away my enjoyment of the book at all. The mindset is of the characters is old fashioned but not wrong. There was a big surprise at the end and I was delighted by it. I hope to see more Albert Campion books available.

    "Enjoyable read"
    Where does Coroner's Pidgin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top twenty but that top twenty changes all the time with the books I listen to AND still read.


    What other book might you compare Coroner's Pidgin to, and why?

    Probably a previous Campion novel


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

    Lugg


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

    No - too nuanced for that.


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes Marjorie Allingham wraps the book up too quickly. Still not sure how it was done this time!
