In this delightful collection of mysteries, Albert Campion takes to the stage as he investigates crimes and murders plaguing London’s West End.

Dancer’s in Mourning finds Campion working a case of malicious practical jokes against a music hall darling that turn deadly.

In The Fashion in Shrouds, Allingham’s charming sleuth is caught up in a family matter: while the death toll spirals around a femme fatale, Campion’s own sister could be next in line.

And finally, Campion must track down a serial killer in the West End in a race against time in Hide My Eyes.

 

Reviews for Margery Allingham

Dancers in Mourning and The Fashion in Shrouds were published in 1937 and 1938, and are the best examples of Allingham’s capacity to create the atmosphere, and machinery, and ideology, of enclosed worlds – the stage and the musical in Dancers in Mourning; the world of haute couture in The Fashion in Shrouds.’ – A S Byatt, The Telegraph

‘Allingham has that rare gift in a novelist, the creation of characters so rich and so real that they stay with the reader forever’ – Sara Paretsky

‘Allingham’s characters are three-dimensional flesh and blood, especially her villains’ – Times Literary Supplement

‘Always of the elect, Margery Allingham now towers above them’ – Observer
