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.

    Margery Allingham's venture into the art world.

    Death of a Ghost' finds Albert Campion in attendance while the family of famous artist John Lafcadio prepares for a posthumous exhibit. Lafcadio, irritated at the thought that another artist, Charles Tanqueray, might outlive him, provided a series of paintings to be shown one at a time, after his death. Max Fustian, art dealer and general popinjay, has prepared a lavish event for this year's unveiling. He is aided in this effort by Belle, Lafcadio's wife and a cast of remarkable zanies that reside in and around the Lafcadio residence. Of course a body becomes part of the scenario and Campion is out chasing nefarious characters again.
