Meet the Author

Margaret 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 pre-eminent 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.

    Campion Sails!

    This mystery is a solid example of a pre-Depression mystery with a family of swaggering Americans, a mysterious 'oriental', an English country house and a wonderful villian - Simister. Campion meets the Americans on ship when he saves the father's life. It turns out that it was the fifth attempt on the man's life - he's a judge who has a lead on Simister's identity. The book revolves around Albert's efforts to both protect the judge and track down Simister.
