Read in March, 2009

I picked this up at McKay's on a whim; I hadn't read an Allingham in years, and like another review I read, I think I tried her when I was reading Sayer's Peter Wimsey mysteries, and what could stack up to them? Well, I'm glad I gave them another try - her writing is crisp, her characters funny and interesting and well-drawn, and I like her humor (typically British and dry - two of my favorites!) I love the period as well, between the wars in Britain (I'm a freak for the Golden Age British mysteries); I'm currently reading her second Campion mystery, "Mystery Mile". I think I will probably try Ngaio Marsh again, and any other authors in the genre I can dig up and try again - I realize it's not fair to compare everyone to Christie and Sayers!
