About the Author:

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.

From AudioFile:

Allingham's Albert Campion ranks with the other legendary detectives in the golden age of cozy mysteries, Lord Peter Wimsey, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Campion's outrageous adventures always involve a grand array of colorful characters, and FASHION is no exception. A set of fashion and stage figures, including Campion's own sister, gets involved in a series of deaths too coincidental to be ignored. Frances Matthews has played the quirky, self-effacing detective in nearly twenty audiobooks, and the wildly original characters are his stock in trade. Some are over the top-as Allingham surely meant-and Matthews has a unique voice or accent for everyone. Lines are delivered with perfect timing, deadpan and hilarious. Campion couldn't ask for a better master of ceremonies. R.F.W.-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
