About the Author:

Margaret Allingham was a prolific writer who sold her first story at age eight and published her first novel before turning 20. Allingham went on to become one of the pre-eminent writers who helped bring the detective story to maturity in the 1920s and 1930s.

From AudioFile:

Your head may well be aching along with Campion's as thesleuth awakens to find he has amnesia and a looming dread that somemomentous event hangs in the balance that only he can put right. Timeticks along as he becomes buried under more and more incomprehensibleinformation. Unable to recognize even the faithful Lugg or his ownfiancée, Campion struggles desperately to put the pieces togetherwhile the very fate of England is at stake. A bit on the convolutedand melodramatic side perhaps, but it's all made enjoyable by thesheer breadth of talent brought to bear by narrator FrancisMatthews. It's a pure pleasure to listen to this man talk. He createsa persona for his characters that never slips while moving adroitlyamong various strata of British society. His professional approach tothis material gleans from it every possible bit of entertainment.D.G. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
