Reviews for Margery Allingham –
“My very favourite of the four Queens of Crime is Allingham” – J. K. Rowling
“Spending an evening with Campion is one of life’s pure pleasures” – The Sunday Times
“At least twice in my life I have owned the complete works of Margery Allingham, but I keep finding that some have gone astray. The detective-story collection is stockpiled in the spare bedroom, and over the years I have found that the Allinghams effortlessly top the list of Books Most Often Nicked” – Jane Stevenson, The Guardian
