Publisher's Summary

A Margery Allingham Campion mystery.

Strange things happen in the picture-postcard English village of Lindsay Carfax. When a young man falls into a quarry, it takes nine days to find the body. When rowdy hippies descend on the village, they're given nine days to leave. When an outspoken schoolmaster is kidnapped for nine days, he stays eerily quiet after his release. 

Now Albert Campion has come to town - and he means to investigate all this strangeness. But whoever is behind the unusual goings - on quickly makes it very clear that his nosing around is not welcome. Undeterred by threats, Campion is determined to expose the criminal masterminds hiding in this sleepy village.

I loved this book

Mike Ripley did a very good job of keeping the Margery Allingham distinctions in this book. It did flag occasionally but never for long enough to detract from the book. A lot of humor and hearing it in David Thorpe’s voice was the final touch that made this book so entertaining.

Great continuation of Campion’s story

Exceeded expectations. I so hope Ripley’s subsequent Albert Campion novels are made available on Audible (and read by David Thorpe).

Terrific

So I’ve found a new writer. Also David Thorpe the narrator is so good at the many different characters and with the very clever writer who make me laugh.
