I listened to the audiobookThis was my first Margery Allingham novel although it is the second in her Albert Campion seriesPublished in 1930 it is an upper middle class romp peppered with caricatured crooks and half witted yokels Protagonist Albert Campion is a gentleman sleuth of some hidden disrepute able to tap into a network of rather improbable underworld connections whenever the need arisesThe plot was solid if a little unimaginative but a seuence of slightly peripheral adventures kept the pages turning In a nutshell Campion becomes charged with hiding a retired American judge from the clutches of a murderous international gang apparently bent upon revenge The action swings between late 1920s London and a country estate on the Suffolk coast in the isolated village of Mystery MileI enjoyed the upbeat tone of voice enhanced by the superb narration of Francis Matthews he of Paul Temple and Captain Scarlet fame that brought colour and distinctiveness to each of the characters Indeed a combination of charm and mischief lent a certain cosiness to the tale making me think that no matter how much hot water Campion got into things would turn out well in the endI anticipate discovering of his escapades Bracebridge Hall romp peppered with caricatured crooks and half witted yokels Protagonist Albert Campion is a gentleman sleuth of some hidden disrepute able to tap into a network of My Guinea Pig (My Pet Series) rather improbable underworld connections whenever the need arisesThe plot was solid if a little unimaginative but a seuence of slightly peripheral adventures kept the pages turning In a nutshell Campion becomes charged with hiding a Hypoxia: Man at Altitude retired American judge from the clutches of a murderous international gang apparently bent upon The Po�sies Diverses of Antoine Fureti�re revenge The action swings between late 1920s London and a country estate on the Suffolk coast in the isolated village of Mystery MileI enjoyed the upbeat tone of voice enhanced by the superb narration of Francis Matthews he of Paul Temple and Captain Scarlet fame that brought colour and distinctiveness to each of the characters Indeed a combination of charm and mischief lent a certain cosiness to the tale making me think that no matter how much hot water Campion got into things would turn out well in the endI anticipate discovering of his escapades

Mystery Mile review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB Margery Allingham ð 3 free read free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ð Margery Allingham Ng that odd things should happen in a town called “Mystery Mile” but even a connoisseur of crime like Albert Campion had never encou. Didn t expect to read this book so soon or all in one go but I was having trouble sleeping so I figured why not It s very obviously a cousin of Sayers Lord Peter Campion could in fact be Peter s cousin although in a satirical vein Albert Campion is a pretty close analogue of Peter Wimsey complete with a number of idiosyncrasies and Lugg although of a decidedly criminal bent than Bunter shares some characteristics with Lord Peter s manIt s still fun even though it s or less mocking one of my favourite series in many ways it manages to be a story on its own too It didn t involve me emotionally but I did read it straight through in one go so there s that going for it I did find the mystery a little bit disjointedincoherent it helped that I d read a summary somewhere before but some of the events seemed pretty randomOverall I enjoyed it enough that I might pick up but not enough that I m going to be in a hurry Allingham was a capable writer but Campion s not interesting enough to me to follow him compulsively
