Margery Allingham was born in London in 1904. She sold her first story at age 8 and published her first novel before turning 20. She married the artist, journalist and editor Philip Youngman Carter in 1927. In 1928 Allingham published her first detective story, The White Cottage Mystery, and the following year, in The Crime at Black Dudley, she introduced the detective who was to become the hallmark of her sophisticated crime novels and murder mysteries - Albert Campion. Famous for her London thrillers, such as Hide My Eyes and The Tiger in the Smoke, Margery Allingham has been compared to Dickens in her evocation of the city's shady underworld. Acclaimed by crime novelists such as P.D. James, Allingham is counted alongside Dorothy L. Sayers, Agatha Christie and Gladys Mitchell as a pre-eminent Golden Age crime writer. Margery Allingham died in 1966.Présentation de l'éditeur:
A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Agatha Christie called her ‘a shining light’. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the 'true queen' of the classic murder mystery?
Judge Crowdy Lobbett is a man of justice, an upstanding pillar of American society. And now he's a man in deadly peril, tailed across the Atlantic by the ruthless Simister gang.
Luckily for Judge Lobbett, however, he makes the acquaintance of one Albert Campion during his voyage to England. The enigmatic amateur sleuth bundles the Judge off to the country house of Mystery Mile, where it's a race against time to keep the Simister posse at bay - and to pinpoint the identity of the mastermind behind their criminal empire...
As urbane as Lord Wimsey…as ingenious as Poirot… Meet one of crime fiction’s Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.
