Margery Allingham's series of short stories has a tribute by Agatha Christie who praises her as a "shining light". One of the characteristics of her writing is that often a story or book has an element of eerie, memorable, scenes as the first story in our Book.But then Allingham's second story has a bitterly sweet, cynical element to it. Each story helps you realize what a consummate Writer she is and how in a few pages she will set an atmosphere... so remarkable... as to leave you within it for a day or two.
This book is a series of stories from a Golden Age Writer at the top of her ability. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Five Stars...
Margery Allingham is perhaps the greatest master of detective fiction in
the world. Voted one of the best mystery writers of all time. She
weaves spine-tingling complex puzzles that challenge even veteran fans.
Her hero, Albert Campion, that ironic understated detective--like Holmes
and Poirot--can take a bit of evidence and unravel an entire, sinister
plot. The Allingham Minibus is an exotic, often bizarre collection of
her best stories, each guaranteed to delight those who love suspense.
