Campion investigates once more, but this time he is on the run from the police - classic British crime writing at its best. Celebrated amateur detective Albert Campion awakes in hospital accused of attacking a police officer and suffering from acute amnesia. All he can remember is that he was on a mission of vital importance to His Majesty's government before his accident. On the run from the police and unable to recognise even his faithful servant Lugg or his own fiancée, Campion struggles desperately to put the pieces together while the very fate of England is at stake.
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.

Can't listen to this narrator..
A different narrator. I can't even finish listening to the book because his voices are so annoying. I'm going to finish the story by reading the hard copy.
Campion's realization of how important Amanda is to him. And the way Albert muddles through with his loss of memory.
The various voices he uses. The one he gives to Campion is dreadful. But the others are annoying as well.
I'm going to return it for a refund. I won't be buying anymore Albert Campion books narrated by David Thorpe. That's too bad because I enjoy these stories.
