‘Nowadays, the Mystery goes everywhere.’
In this fantastic collection of thirteen short stories, Margery Allingham explores both the Mystery and the other genres it has allowed her to write.
From a portrait of her leading man to classic capers and from traditional British mysteries to wonderful literary short stories, Allingham displays her wit, her humour, and her prowess not just as a Mystery writer but as a storyteller.
Reissued thirty years after its first publication, The Return of Mr Campion proves that both The Mystery and Allingham are still everywhere.
The Return of Mr Campion was first published in 1989.
