Pearls Before Swine

Margery Allingham: Pearls Before Swine (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
World War II is limping to a close, but it isn't the Germans who are troubling the Dowager Marchioness of Carados right now. The problem, rather, is her son's upcoming marriage, to a nearly appropriate girl, and its potential for being derailed by a distinctly inappropriate one. Who apparently chose the Marchioness's son's bed in which to swallow a fatal handful of pills.

Never one to be cowed, the Marchioness enlists a friend to dump the body in a temporarily empty flat. But the flat's owner -- one Albert Campion -- returns home unexpectedly, on brief leave from the war. Understandably a bit put out, Campion determines nonetheless to carry out his original plan: a fast change of clothing and then off to the country and the loving embrace of his wife. The police, however, have other ideas.

Campion returns from three years work for the War Office in Europe to find that Lugg, his manservant, has brought him an unusual gift: the black silk nightdress-clad body of a dead woman, an apparent suicide.

Pearls Before Swine

Margery Allingham: Pearls Before Swine (USA 1990)

From the Publisher:
A Body Nobody Wanted...
It was most unfortunate that Edna, Dowager Marchioness of Carados, found a strange woman in her son's bed the night 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 in 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.

Confidential Investigator: Albert Campion
A tall, thin man with overly 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.

Margery Allingham: Pearls Before Swine. Bantam Books, ISBN: 0553245481 (March, 1990), 216 p., $3.95.

Coroner's Pidgin

Margery Allingham: Coroner's Pidgin (UK 1962)

From the Publisher:
Albert Campion was used to surprises, yet there were times when even he was caught unawares. After all, there was no reason to anticipate any complication. Here he was, just safely back in wartime London after years abroad, lazing in the bath, placidly planning the next few hours which were to culminate in a leisurely journey to the station, and so home for a long leave; no rush and no fuss. Then he heard steps on the stairs outside... heavy steps. Into the room clumped two persons carrying a third, and as Mr Campion peered out of the bathroom door, he could make out Lugg, his factotum, a lady of unmistakably aristocratic bearing, and the corpse of a woman. It was unnerving to say the least, but he determined to avoid the consequences. He even got into a taxi to go to the station, but alas, it was not an ordinary taxi, and he was impelled to take an interest in the mystery of the corpse, the extraordinary behaviour of a well-known public figure, and the alarming disappearance of some well-known art treasures.
