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.

    My First Campion Mystery that led me to the rest.

    Meg Eginbrodde has cause to be upset. On the eve of her wedding to Geoffrey Levett photographs of her first husband, who died in the war, suddenly start turning up. Someone wants her to think Martin Elginbrodde is still alive, and she doesn't know what to do. At a loss, Meg and Geoffrey turn to Albert Campion and Charlie Luke to help solve the problem. Campion and Luke are sure that Martin is dead, but they don't understand why someone is bent on proving otherwise. First an actor dies, then Geoffrey disappears, then a series of brutal killings points to someone who is desperately seeking information that Martin left for his wife before he died.
