In a masterpiece of storytelling, Margery Allingham sends her elegant and engaging detective Albert Campion into the eccentric Palinode household, situated in Apron Street, where there have been two suspicious deaths. The Palinodes, once a wealthy family, have fallen on hard times and Campion himself finds the Palinode family very strange… And if poisoning were not enough, there are also anonymous letters, sudden violence and a vanishing coffin. Meanwhile, the Palinodes go about their nocturnal business and Campion dices with danger in his efforts to find the truth. The book is full of wonderfully weird characters not least the undertakers… and the description of London just after the war brings the period to life.
