The Allingham Casebook is a collection of eighteen delightful mysteries from the Queen of Crime, guaranteed to baffle the most ingenious of armchair detectives — and even, at times, the imperturbable Albert Campion himself.
Enjoy Margery Allingham at her best as she spins delicious tales of high-risk heists and domestic deceptions in this exquisite short story collection.
The Allingham Casebook was originally published in 1969.
