This review is from: Coroner's Pidgin (Paperback)
It is easy to forget that Margery Allingham is not just a detective story writer but a very good author. Her style and description is masterly. This book is a superb period-piece, it recalls days and events which occured long before most present day readers would have been born but does it so vividly that one can almost feel oneself slipping back into that world.It is gripping and exciting, I would recommend it as a good holiday read.
