Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 1/2/2014

    " This was part of a series, so I wasn't familiar with the characters. In my opinion, though - too much party planning, not enough mystery, and by the end the characters' words and actions became almost unintelligible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chriss | 11/7/2013

    " A little hard to follow at times, due to references that are a bit period now, but very rich in setting and description. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jude Brigley | 10/29/2013

    " I absolutely disliked it. I disliked the characters, their triviality, the snobbishness and the dire plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Kleinman | 10/22/2013

    " This is not one of my favorite Margery Allingham books. It seemed as though she was trying too hard to be witty and "British". Still it was a good read for a rainy day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana Stabenow | 8/10/2013

    " Best read for the alluring portrait of the English countryside in summer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kestrell | 12/3/2012

    " Mr. Campion and family get caught up in a midsummer mystery and preparations for a party involving some of their most mad and manic friends, complete with an elderly character who combines characteristics of Puck with those of the rude mechanicals. Tremendous fun and very rereadable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleanor | 9/3/2012

    " Not so much a murder mystery as a character piece. The deaths are incidental to the plot (which is the party) and not the driving force - interesting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 7/22/2012

    " Always enjoy a good Campion. Wish I realized it was the American imprint. I always wonder what they changed to translate British to 'murican. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E Goldberg | 4/12/2012

    " Surprise ending! Possibly a bit long. ?? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mairi | 8/23/2011

    " I don't know if it was the writing or my inability to concentrate on anything longer than a PostIt note while I was reading it but this one seemed to wander, meander and take a while to get to the point, even for a Campion book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cece | 5/9/2011

    " An excess of fringe characters made this one a little hard to follow at times, but Campion still entertains. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margot Ayer | 5/4/2011

    " My first Campion mystery and still one of my favorites. I love her depiction of long summer days in an unusual artist community in post-war England. "
