With the Simister Gang out to get him, America is too hot for Judge Lobbett. He takes refuge on an island on the Suffolk coast, but even there life is far from peaceful. Blackmail, abduction and sudden death bring matters to a climax. It is Albert Campion, with the unorthodox help of his man Lugg, who masterminds the defence of Mystery Mile and uncovers the true face of Simister. The island is based on Mersea Island in Essex.

Margery Allingham walks a very fine line with sleuth Albert Campion. His silliness sometimes gets on ones’ nerve, but she’s quick enough to swerve the reader’s attention to some new fact or some funny comment or situation—so you immediately forgive her! I had a hard time getting through her first Campion book (The Crime at Black Dudley), it took me several pages to want to continue reading, but it paid off. This is an enjoyable, old-fashioned story. I especially like the character Magersfontein Lugg—where can I find me another Lugg??? The TV series is good, but doesn't capture Campion's silly and vacuous persona as well as the book describes him. Worth watching though.
