Everyone fell under the spell of Jimmy Sutane, the charming and talented song-and-dance man.

Everyone, that is, except the spiteful practical joker who put a pin in his stick of grease-paint and pasted 'Last Week' over the 'House Full' notices. Nothing too deadly. But as soon as Albert Campion is called in to investigate, people begin to die, and there's no shortage of suspects when the first victim's death is so convenient for so many.

As the death toll rises and the tension mounts, Margery Allingham's imperturbable detective loses his heart - and his customary detachment - when he falls violently in love with Jimmy Sutane's wife...

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan O'Neill | 12/26/2013

    " Not one of the best Campions. A bit slow paced, but the writing is as good as ever, and the resolution surprising. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 11/24/2013

    " This mystery deserves its good reputation for being one of richer Campions. Campion's struggles with his conscience give it a special depth, and I love the way the surprise twist at the end plays on his temporarily cloudy judgment. I can't put my finger on why it was heavy going for me at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Stephenson | 9/7/2013

    " Started very cleverly and mystified me in the end, but left me somewhat cold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 6/5/2013

    " Campion is called to investigate spiteful practical jokes being played on professional dancer Jimmy Sutane and is wife Linda. Tehen people begin to die and there is no shortage of suspects. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Auringer Danjin | 11/18/2012

    " Another Albert Campion story. I am so fond of several of the mid century British detectives - Campion and Lord Peter Wimsey. Their eccentricity makes it great fun and the mysteries are intelligent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jocelyn | 11/15/2012

    " Albert Campion in the show business world. This was a fun book up until the end, where the murderer just was not very deftly unmasked. "

    " Unexpectedly delightful. Diving into the golden age of crime, Allingham delivered more than anticipated, a few paragraphs were glorious, the plot interesting and the ending was both acceptable, and not entirely discernible from page 1. Also, fantastic for a vacation read. "

    This one is great.
