The Beckoning Lady

Margery Allingham: The Beckoning Lady (USA 2010)

From the Publisher:
Old William Faraday is dead, apparently of natural causes. Another man is dead too, and it was certainly murder. Mr Campion and his family are back in Pontisbright, along with Magersfontein Lugg and DCI Charles Luke. Danger is hardly unknown in this idyllic Suffolk village, but it is a less romantic peril than on Mr Campion's first visit, more than twenty years ago. Mr Campion's friends Minnie and Tonker Cassands put on a cheerful face as they prepare for their annual party at Minnie's house, The Beckoning Lady, but Minnie has serious problems with the Inland Revenue - and the dead man in the ditch is a tax inspector.

The Estate of the Beckoning Lady

Margery Allingham: The Estate of the Beckoning Lady (USA 1989)

From the Publisher:
Little Doom, the pesky tax-collector, meets his big doom violently--bashed like a mosquito in an open meadow. Soon after, old Uncle William expires peacefully in his room at The Beckoning Lady. Albert Campion has a hunch that the two deaths are related, and that the beloved eccentric's demise wasn't quite as natural as everyone supposed. So it's off to Suffolk to attend the wildest weekend party of the decade--and to expose a murderer before he or she beckons another poor unfortunate soul toward an untimely end!

Equally at home in the underworld and among the upper crust, super-sleuth Albert Campion rarely misses a clue or fails to find a motive. Behind his horn-rimmed glasses and mild-mannered facade is a brilliant mind that can penetrate to the villainous heart of the most heinous crime.

The Estate of the Beckoning Lady

Margery Allingham: The Estate of the Beckoning Lady (USA 1975)

From the Publisher:
RHODODENDRON means danger, beware...
CYPRESS stands for mourning...
MONKSHOOD warns "a deadly foe is here."

Campion had no trouble reading the message contained in the faded bouquet innocently presented by a child. He was in mourning: a friend had died. A natural death, the doctor had said, though sudden. But in the whole of that green and smiling countryside, there seems to be danger -- unless it came from the other body,m lying so quietly in a ditch. The body of a very dead man that nobody mourned, or even missed.

A small village in Suffolk, England, is the scene of two seemingly unrelated murders right before the town's grandest party of the decade. Detective Campion suspects that the murderer will be present at the bash, and his clever sleuthing provides mystery readers with the twists of plot and a surprise ending to baffle and delight!

Margery Allingham: The Estate of the Beckoning Lady. Manor Books, 176 p., $0.95.
