When song-and-dance star Jimmy Sutane falls victim to a string of malicious practical jokes, there’s only one man who can get to the bottom of the apparent vendetta against the music hall darling- Albert Campion. Soon, however, the backstage pranks escalate and an ageing starlet is killed. Under pressure to uncover the culprit and plagued by his growing feelings for Sutane’s wife, Campion finds himself uncomfortably embroiled in an investigation which tests his ingenuity and integrity to the limit. ‘Unforgettable.’ – A.S. Byatt ‘Faultless’ – The Times

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)
