Timothy Kinnit needs Albert Campion's help. He is rich, handsome and successful but his past is a mystery to him and he needs Campion to find out how it connects him to the notorious Turk Street Mile slum.

In addition, his own illustrious adopted family has a sinister secret of his own—involving a murderous 19th-century governess—that must also be brought to life by Campion's investigations. An Albert Campion mystery.

About the Author:

Margery Allingham was born in Ealing, London in 1904 to a family immersed in literature. Her first novel, Blackkerchief Dick, was published in 1923 when she was 19. Her first work of detective fiction was a serialized story published by the Daily Express in 1927. Entitled The White Cottage Mystery, it contained atypical themes for a woman writer of the era. Her breakthrough occurred in 1929 with the publication of The Crime at Black Dudley. This introduced Albert Campion, albeit originally as a minor character. He returned in Mystery Mile, thanks in part to pressure from her American publishers, much taken with the character. Campion proved so successful that Allingham made him the centrepiece of another 17 novels and over 20 short stories, continuing into the 1960s.

Review:

"Margery Allingham has worked her way up to a worthy place among the tiny hierarchy of front-rankers in the detective world" * Tatler * "One of the finest 'golden age' crime novelists" * Sunday Telegraph * "Faultless" * The Times * "Allingham captures her quintessential quiet detective Albert Campion to perfection... For those who relish classic crime fiction" * Daily Express *
