I've become a huge fan of Margery Allingham's Campion series; I've enjoyed Sayers and Christie for years, but after reading one Campion years ago, didn't really "feel it"! I found a reissue of "Police at the Funeral" at a used book store and decided to try again, and I'm glad I did. I'm reading them in order and just ordered several from Amazon to fill in the missing books my library doesn't have.

This book is more of an adventure than a mystery, really, set in 1933 rural Suffolk and once again Allingham constructs a rather whimsical, convoluted plot peopled with interesting, fun characters and witty dialogue. Others can summarize the plot better than I can and have below - suffice it say, if you enjoy the Golden Age of British mysteries, you might want to give Allingham a try! I think her books are a lot of fun.
