Publisher's Summary

Fact catches up with fiction when the secret of telepathic communication is discovered. But the device at the centre of the mystery is in the possession of two schoolboys and whether they stole it or invented it, there are powerful interests who will kill to get hold of it.

Albert Campion faces as deadly a challenge as any in his career. As urbane as Lord Wimsey.as ingenious as Poirot. Meet one of crime fiction's Great Detectives, Mr Albert Campion.

Critic Reviews

"Margery Allingham stands out like a shining light. Everything she writes has a definite shape...each book has its own separate and distinctive background" ( Agatha Christie)
"Miss Allingham has a strong, well controlled sense of humour, a power of suggesting character with a few touches and an excellent English style. She has a sense of the fantastic, and is never dull" ( Times Literary Supplement)
"The real queen of crime" ( Guardian)

Satisfying!

One of the best, featuring Canon Averill who played such a big part in Tiger in the Smoke.

very disappointed

This book was very disappointing--a big build-up and big letdown for an ending. Read very well.

Book Not Suitable for Audio

This book is just not suitable for an audiobook. So many characters, so many names, so many events to follow. It would be confusing enough with a paperback but probably doable, as I could look back at some sections and take some notes with character names etc. It would probably help to have a character name before each section, but still, mightily confusing. Head-hopping, character soup. It's not author's best work. Still, some books are just compliecated like that, and producers should know better than to record them. I know, market, money, yes. But don't be surprised when one star reviews show up...

I'm usually a great fan of Margery Allingham but I found this story very difficult to follow and completely unbelievable.

A load of old tosh.

A load of old tosh. And ten other words because a review requires 15. Apparently.
