About the book:
A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY Agatha Christie called her `a shining light'. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the 'true queen' of the classic murder mystery? Scandal, secrets and suspicions abound when one of the directors at the prestigious publishing house of Barnabas is found dead, locked in the company's strongroom. All eyes are on the other partners at the firm - cousins of the dead man with much to gain from his demise - and all rumours hint at a connection to the disappearance of another director decades earlier. Desperate to salvage their reputation, the cousins turn to Albert Campion - but will his investigations clear the Barnabas family name, or besmirch it forever? As urbane as Lord Wimsey...as ingenious as Poirot... Meet one of crime fiction's Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.
