A collection of stories written for a 1930's women's magazine, these stories are difficult to read today because the plots are transparent, the characters are cardboard, and the dialog is dated. The eight stories are about a society girl who seeks revenge on eight financiers who defrauded her friends and family. Only for Allingham fanatics who are collecting everything she ever wrote.

Been a while since I read these. But I did like them. It was nice to read something by Allingham that wasn't about Albert Campion (not that I don't love Campion, I do).

Aka Maxwell March.

Margery Louise Allingham was born in Ealing, London in 1904 to a family of writers. Her father, Herbert John Allingham, was editor of The Christian Globe and The New London Journal, while her mother wrote stories for women's magazines. Margery's aunt, Maud Hughes, also ran a magazine. Margery earned her first fee at the age of eight, for a story printed in her aunt's magazine.
