Journal Entry 1 by wingtabby-cat-ownerwing from Bellingham, Washington USA on Monday, September 30, 2019
A tall, thin man with overtly large spectacles, he is deceptively unobtrusive when tracking down a killer and uncannily capable of predicting the deadly twists of a criminal's mind. He is unquestionably a gentleman, but even Lugg, his dauntless valet, and his friends at Scotland Yard don't know all the secrets in Campion's past--or the confidential cases he has covertly solved while in His Majesty's Service.
It was most unfortunate the Edna, Dowager Marchioness of Carados, found a strange woman in her son's bed the day before his wedding. It was even more unfortunate that the woman was obviously dead. Under the circumstances, Campion couldn't blame Edna for moving the body. He just wasn't pleased that she brought it to him. Campion wanted to believe that his friend Johnny, the Marquess of Carados, wasn't the woman's killer, but the clues to the case were baffling: a string of fake pearls, two bottles of rare wine, a bride who brought home a boyfriend...and a pet pig.
