Anyone who has not read this book does not know what they are missing.
An absolute cracker well worth 5 stars which I reserve only for the elite.
A great example of a mystery of its time, this book introduces Campion who grows within the context of the story and on into the series until he takes a place along side Agetha Christies' Hercule Poirot as a favourite 'mystery' character solving crimes using their little grey cells. A very enjoyable book which if it didn't quote prices and used fewer terms from times gone by could well stand the test of time bearing in mind that it was written nearly 80 years ago. I first read this book 40 years ago and found it just as entertaining. If this is a new author to you, try it, if like me reading it again after many years, enjoy it.
