Police at the Funeral (Classic Crime)
4 journalers for this copy...
"Uncle Andrew is dead. Aunt Julia is poisoned. Uncle William attacked... and once again Albert Campion, that much-loved hero of detective ficion, comes to the rescue. With her customary skill Margery Allingham takes the reader through a delightful maze of intrigue as Albert Campion, bland, blue-eyed and deceptively vague, encounters the formidable Great Aunt Caroline and her bizarre houshold horror."
Leftover from a cousin's bookshelf.
A smashing and really enjoyable and amusing crime novel! I will be looking for more of Allingham's works.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
The book now travels as a birthday RABCK to a fellow BookCrosser.
Quirky and whimsical, but with a real plot - just what a good whodunnit ought to be. Thank you so much for sharing, sota48! What a wonderful birthday surprise (and apologies for not journalling before...)
Now... Who to forward this to? It has to be someone of a certain mindset, methinks.
Lovely and quaint detective fiction from 1931, adorable! I'm releasing it for the next lucky person in Oslo today!
