Allingham's always good, but this one's confusing
Have not read the print version.
Yes, I enjoyed this book, although I found it the most confusing of all the Campion books. I am reading them all in order, and will grieve when they are done.
I liked Julia so much, as I find young people with firm, strong personalities and self-knowledge to be refreshing.
Might have been less confusing if I had. Yes.
Although "legend" has it that Allingham wrote these novels as an imitation of Dorothy Sayers, she was immensely talented. Campion is a fantastic character and the sense of atmosphere, especially over the decades, is thorough. Allingham IS as good as Sayers, and that is saying a huge amount in my book!
David Thorpe, as always, is non-traditional and excellent.
