Margery Allingham was a prolific writer who sold her first story at age eight and published her first novel before turning 20. She went on to become one of the "Three Queens" of Britain's "Golden Age" of crime fiction (the other two being Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers), who are credited with bringing the genre to maturity in the 1920s - 1940s.Review:
"Miss Allingham's strength resides in the power of her characterizations, in her striking talent for painting vivid social backgrounds, and in her skillful use of language" -- Manchester Guardian (UK)
