Celebrated amateur detective Albert Campion awakes in hospital accused of attacking a police officer and suffering from acute amnesia. All he can remember is that he was on a mission of vital importance to His Majesty's government before his accident. On the run from the police and unable to recognise even his faithful servant Lugg or his own fiancee, Campion struggles desperately to put the pieces together while the very fate of England is at stake.See all Product description

It starts with him waking up in hospital with a loss of memory and as it slowly returns he sees how much Amanda really means to him, especially as he seems to have lost her. Also his singleness of purpose and his patriotism and his vulnrablity. I like to listen to CDs when I am knitting and I was not dissapointed. In fact I have listened to it several times now.
Suspense beyond belief ,and very well written, poetic even.( Nothing like Agatha Christie).She wrote it between bombings during the second world war.
Can't believe it was never made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock.
