Amanda is one of the best characters Allingham ever crafted. This is where Campion meets Amanda and discovers his lieutenant and female counterpart. Lugg works with his country 'cousin' Scatty William who is to Amanda what Lugg is to Campion.
One of the best bits is how Campion and Amanda work behind the scenes together. A perfect team in the making beginning with Amanda baffling her family with her sudden acquisition of £300, and plans to buy first a car and then some electronic equipment. While doing this she also nips in ahead of Campion's masculine cohort to retrieve a pertinent clue. All done without making the rest seem like dolts just slower on the uptake.
The supernatural fails to rivet as I'm sure it did in the day this was written but still a good mystery.
