Coroner's Pidgin

Margery Allingham

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Classic crime

Campion is welcomed back from his three-year stint with the war office by a suspicious suicide case -- classic British crime writing at its best.

Campion returns from three years work for the War Office in Europe to find that Lugg, his manservant, has brought him an unusual gift: the black silk nightdress-clad body of a dead woman, an apparent suicide. Wanting only to get away to a well-deserved rest, Campion must instead assist Detective Chief Inspector Oates and Superintendent Yeo in unravelling a tangled plot of deception and murder, as the war draws to its conclusion.
