"Allingham's work is always of the first rank" (New York Times)
"Margery Allingham has worked her way up to a worthy place among the tiny hierarchy of front-rankers in the detective world" (Tatler)
"Margery Allingham deserves to be rediscovered" (P.D. James)
"Poor narration and editing"
I am not fond of this narrator but his inane performance is made worse by the fact that repetition and yawning have not been edited out. Wherever possible I choose Campion stories narrated by Francis Matthews.
"A great listen"
It's classic and it's great I loved it and I've now bought 4 more to enjoy
"Didn't seem like 9 hours!"
Very enjoyable in the classic English mystery way. Would recommend highly and will add other titles from this series. Thumbs up
