Overview

In this, Ms. Allingham’s last novel, the action revolves around Saltey, for centuries a hidey-hole for all manner of villains. Astonishingly, it is the early 1960s, and Saltey, like many English coastal towns, is being over-run by teenage gangs. But that’s not why Albert Campion – now, really astonishingly, in late middle-age – has persuaded Lugg to take up residence. His interest lies in part with the just-out-of-prison thief who has (in time-honored tradition) gone to ground in Saltey. But his most passionate interest is reserved for the curious, newly revived story of the Saltey Demon.

Meet the Author

Margery Allingham
Margery Allingham was a prolific writer who sold her first story at age eight and published her first novel before turning 20. Allingham went on to become one of the preeminent writers who helped bring the detective story to maturity in the 1920s and 1930s.

Biography

"Like Alice, I try to believe three impossible things before breakfast" -- Margery Allingham

Margery Allingham took to writing naturally, finishing her first novel while still a teenager. But it was with The Crime at Dudley Black, written in 1928, that she made her first significant mark on the crime-writing landscape. Introducing the character of Albert Campion, mild-mannered amateur detective and gentleman, she had given birth to a new style of sleuth: well-rounded, insightful and thoroughly entertaining. "To Albert Campion has fallen the honour of being the first detective to feature in a story which is also by any standard a distinguished novel," commented The Observer.

A prolific writer, she continued to produce books right up until her death in 1966, enjoying huge success on both sides of the Atlantic.

    An English Village Campion.

    The village of Salty has an unsavory reputation. It's not only a notorious smugglers' haven, but also a dangerous backwater linked with tales of demons, pirates and murder. Allingham's hero, Albert Campion, has a secret interest in the place as do an American historian and a beautiful doctor. This is a fine, old-fashioned English mystery with classic twists in plot and colorful, local characters. Allingham is a master at these.
