Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Behind his distinctive owlish glasses and gentle, deceptive naïveté, Albert Campion conceals a passion for excitement and danger. Peter Davison (All Creatures Great and Small, Doctor Who) plays Margery Allingham's enigmatic sleuth, with Brian Glover as his loyal but slightly shady manservant, in these classic mysteries set in the 1930s. When an international ring of thieves and killers conspire to destroy a prominent British family, Campion and his sidekick agree to help protect the family name and fortune, but before long they find themselves involved in a witches' brew of curses, spells, and -- naturally -- murder.
