If you like Lord Peter Wimsey and other classic mystery detectives of the 1930s, you'll probably enjoy Albert Campion, Margery Allingham's detective, as well. In this book, Campion investigates a series of mysterious accidents and dirty tricks that are plaguing a well-known revue dancer, falls in love with the dancer's wife, and then murders ensue. The incomparable Lugg (Campion's ex-con manservant) appears less than in some of the books, but the scenes where he interacts with the dancer's 6-year-old daughter, teaching her three-card Monte and how to pick a lock, are priceless.
