9780099507345: Police At the Funeral: A Campion Mystery

Agatha Christie called her 'a shining light'. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the 'true queen' of the classic murder mystery?

     A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
     Private detective Albert Campion is summoned to Cambridge to assist the Faraday family with a mystery. He must untangle a web of family resentments and discover the truth behind the disappearance of one of the Faraday cousins, vanished without trace one Sunday morning after church, only to be found dead in a secluded stream.
     Matters are complicated further by the murder of Julia, one of the Faraday sisters, poisoned by her morning cup of tea. Campion must unravel a chillingly ingenious plot, strewn with red herrings to get to the real secret of the Faradays.

      As urbane as Lord Wimsey... as ingenious as Poirot... Meet one of crime fiction's Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.

Product Description:

When Albert Campion is called in by the fiancée of an old college friend to investigate the disappearance of her uncle, he little expects the mysterious spate of death and danger that follows among the bizarre inhabitants of Socrates Close, Cambridge.

He and Stanislaus Oates must tread carefully, and battle some complex family dynamics to solve the case.

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.
