Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Sutane is London's favorite song-and-dance man, headlining at the Argosy Theatre, and beloved by all. Or almost all - someone has taken to playing increasingly nasty pranks. Albert Campion offers to poke around, but what he finds chez Sutane nearly overwhelms him. The far-from traditional household features a clutch of explosive egos, including a brooding 'genius musician,' and a melodramatic young actress who seems to delight in drawing others into her web of carefully groomed tragedy. Someone here is aiming to hang up Sutane's tap shoes on a permanent basis, and if Campion is to keep Jimmy dancing, he'll have to come up with some pretty fancy footwork of his own.

Margery Allingham was born in London in 1904. Her first novel was published when she was seventeen. In 1929 she published The Crime at Black Dudley and introduced the character who was to become the hallmark of her writing - Albert Campion.

    Any additional comments?

    I love the Campion series and the plot is satisfyingly full of twists. Good story but, most especially, the narrator is truly wonderful! David Thorpe captures all the different characters well with a really impressive repertoire of different voices for each. His delivery adds a great deal of well-placed comedic touches to the story. I am definitely looking for more books narrated by Mr. Thorpe.

    Where does Dancers in Mourning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a book that deserves to be near the top of the tree in the Margery Allingham canon.


    Any additional comments?

    This book follows similar lines to the other Albert Campion books. Very well crafted with good interaction between the numerous character especially Lugg and Campion. I thought it was a little bit slow in starting but once the bodies started appearing it took off. If you ever get a paper version of this book, whatever you do don't loose the last page, as it's only in the last paragraph you find out "who done it". I was wrong by the way. Excellent book.
