Albert Campion is sailing home when he saves the life of fellow passenger, Judge Crowdy Lobbett. Hunted by the notoriously deadly Simister gang, it seems as though the judge's troubles have followed him from America. Determined to catch the infamous gang leader, Albert bundles the judge, along with his son Marlowe and beautiful daughter Isopel, to the manor at Mystery Mile, where he hopes to lure the villain out into the open. But the safe haven of Mystery Mile is soon invaded by danger, and when people start disappearing, the race to uncover the enigma of their enemy's true identity becomes ever more urgent.

The only way I could endure Albert Campion's flippant nonsense was to put them in Noel Coward's voice. Even so, it became very tiresome.

Margery Allingham walks a very fine line with sleuth Albert Campion. His silliness sometimes gets on ones’ nerve, but she’s quick enough to swerve the reader’s attention to some new fact or some funny comment or situation—so you immediately forgive her! I had a hard time getting through her first Campion book (The Crime at Black Dudley), it took me several pages to want to continue reading, but it paid off. This is an enjoyable, old-fashioned story. I especially like the character Magersfontein Lugg—where can I find me another Lugg??? The TV series is good, but doesn't capture Campion's silly and vacuous persona as well as the book describes him. Worth watching though.

It's crackers to slip a rozzer the dropsy in snide. (Magersfontein Lugg)
