Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Allingham, a contemporary of Agatha Christie, wrote highly detailed, stylish mysteries. Like Christie's Hercule Poirot, Allingham's Albert Campion became a dominant character in her many novels. In The Fashion in Shrouds, Campion finds himself caught up in a series of murders that surround the well-known actress Georgia Wells. As the story progresses, suspects abound. Even Campion's sister, Val, begins to look guilty. After all, Georgia's latest conquest had been Val's beau. The author's writing style is brilliant and witty, although at times the language is a bit dated. She maintains the reader's interest through her well-defined and intriguing characters and her absorbing plots. Francis Matthews does a wonderful job in his performance, catching all the many dialects of the players. Sure to be fashionable with mystery lovers who prefer Christie to Spillane. Recommended for all public libraries. Theresa Connors, Arkansas Tech Univ., Russellville

"Margery Allingham deserves to be rediscovered" -- P.D. James "Allingham's work is always of the first rank" New York Times "Allingham was a contemporary of Agatha Christie but her work is thought by many to be more stylish and less pedestrian, with cunning plots and witty characters" Sunday Express "As addictive as cocaine, Allingham's stories feature spooky happenings and violent death" Independent
