The Observer said: ‘To Albert Campion has fallen the honour of being the first detective to figure in a story which is also a distinguished novel.’

First, there is a skeleton in a dinner jacket. Then a corpse in a golden aeroplane. After another body, Albert Campion nearly makes a fourth…Both the skeleton and the corpse have died with suspicious convenience for Georgia Wells, a femme fatale, monstrous but charming actress with a raffish entourage. Georgia is a fascinating character herself, larger than life and of a tactile nature.  Georgia’s best friend just happens to be Valentine, a top couturiere and Campion’s sister. In order to protect Valentine, Campion must unravel a story of blackmail and ruthless murder.  The story is full of intrigue, intricately and cleverly written, and populated with colourful characters.  A joy to read.   An Albert Campion mystery
