“I loved this taut page-turning thriller by Margery Allingham which reads like Graham Greene meets Patricia Highsmith in 1950s London. Her regular sleuth Albert Campion does make an appearance but this isn’t a ‘whodunnit’ but more of an exploration of how far someone will go to protect someone that they love, even if it means lying to themself. A gripping read.” Bob.
Agatha Christie called her ‘a shining light’. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the ‘true queen’ of the classic murder mystery? In Hide My Eyes, private detective Albert Campion finds himself hunting down a serial killer. A spate of murders leaves him and his friend and colleague Inspector Luke, with only two baffling clues: a left-hand glove and a lizard-skin lettercase. However, a chain of strange events leads them to an odd museum of curiosities hidden in a quiet London neighbourhood where more is going on than meets the eye. As urbane as Lord Wimsey… as ingenious as Poirot… Meet one of crime fiction’s Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.
