Albert Campion finds himself tangled up in the theater world, but who will be left standing when the curtain falls? An audiobook from one of the greats of crime fiction, alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.
Everyone fell under the spell of Jimmy Sutane, the charming and talented song-and-dance man—everyone, that is, except the spiteful practical joker who put a pin in his stick of grease-paint and pasted "Last Week" over the "House Full: notices. Nothing too deadly. But as soon as Albert Campion is called in to investigate, people begin to die, and there's no shortage of suspects when the first victim's death is so convenient for so many. As the death toll rises and the tension mounts, Margery Allingham's imperturbable detective loses his heart—and his customary detachment—when he falls violently in love with Jummy Sultane's wife. Abridged.
