This review is from: Coroner's Pidgin (Penguin Classic Crime) (Paperback)
This book is set in wartime London and has an intriguing mystery involving murders, vintage wine and missing antiques that Campion has to solve before he catches a train home on leave. The identity of the culprit came as a surprise to this reviewer, at least. There is a strange collection of characters including Campion's uncle, the Bishop of Devizes (curiously, for he is stated in earlier books to have died before the war). For Allingham fans, Lugg as an ARP warden (and part-time pig-keeper)is a treat.
