Review by Figgles
A late Campion, with some similarities to but not as good as the brilliant "Tiger in the Smoke". Sometimes I find Allingham's writing rather opaque, as she lets characters express their emotions in a very oblique way and I'm not always sure I understand her meaning... however the story and characters held my interest. Don't start with this one, again it's one for the fans...
