Critic Reviews

"Margery Allingham stands out like a shining light. Everything she writes has a definite shape...each book has its own separate and distinctive background" ( Agatha Christie)
"Miss Allingham has a strong, well controlled sense of humour, a power of suggesting character with a few touches and an excellent English style. She has a sense of the fantastic, and is never dull" ( Times Literary Supplement)
"The real queen of crime" ( Guardian)

Satisfying!

One of the best, featuring Canon Averill who played such a big part in Tiger in the Smoke.
