Bibliography

” I love Allingham most [of all the Queens of Crime], because she wrote best and is most surprising and satisfactory as a tale-teller… One of Allingham’s great gifts, or skills, is the conveying of intent human energy, the opposite quality of the languid young men… Allingham can do both good and evil convincingly. But her nature is generous – her readers must understand as well as shudder at these truly nasty persons.” A. S. Byatt

Margery Allingham is revered and loved by readers.  Her novels are intelligent, sophisticated, full of insight into characters and deviousness in terms of plot.  A real treat to read and joy to discover.  Her protagonist,  Albert Campion first appeared as a supporting character in The Crime at Black Dudley, an adventure story involving a ring of criminals, and would go on to feature in another 18 novels and over 20 short stories.

1917 – The Rescue of the Rain Clouds – aged 13, she sold her fairy story to her Aunt Maud – Maud Huges – for publication in Mother and Home.
