Police at the Funeral

Margery Allingham: Police at the Funeral (USA 2007)

From the Publisher:
The imperious Caroline Faraday runs her house like a Victorian fiefdom, unconcerned with the fact that it's 1931. Furniture and meals are heavy and elaborate, both motorcars and morning tea are forbidden on account of vulgarity. The Faraday children -- now well into middle age chafe at the restrictions, but with no money of their own, they respond primarily by quarreling amongst themselves.

Their endless squabbling is tedious but nothing more until one of them turns up missing and then dead, followed shortly by his petulant, whining sister. Though neither will be much missed, decency demands that Caroline Faraday hire the nearly respectable Albert Campion to investigate their untimely ends. Unfortunately, what Mr. Campion discovers will force the modern world relentlessly into Mrs. Faraday's stuffy Victorian parlor.

Police at the Funeral

Margery Allingham: Police at the Funeral (USA 1963)

From the Publisher:
THE SCENE: Socrates Close. A Cambridge landmark and home of the Farradays.
THE CAST: The Farraday family.
CAROLINE, strong minded widow and martriarch of the clan
WILLIAM, her middle-aged son - smug, pompous and still dependent on his mother
ANDREW, her bitter insulting nephew - who wrote a book exposing the family skeleton
JULIA, her spinster daughter - greedy, ill-tempered and unloved
KITTY, the daughter who married beneath her station decades before - and was still unforgiven.

From this unlikely cast, Campion had to pick the star in the bizarre drama of MURDER that was turning the old house into a chamber of horrors!
