9780099506096: Hide My Eyes

A quiet, ruthless killer strikes in London’s theatre district. Superintendent Luke thinks he has seen the pattern before. Mr. Campion wonders what became of the old couple in the country bus who must have witnessed the crime... In this exercise in suspense, the trail leads to an eccentric museum in west London, and to a scrap yard in the East End.

About the Author:

Margery Allingham published her first novel before turning twenty. She went on to become one of the pre-eminent writers who helped bring the detective story to maturity in the 1920s and 1930s.

Review:

Margery Allingham was born in London in 1904. She attended the Perse School in Cambridge before returning to London to the Regent Street Polytechnic. Her father- author H.J.Allingham - encouraged her to write, and was delighted when she contributed to her aunt's cinematic magazine, The Picture Show, at the age of eight. Her first novel was published when she was seventeen. In 1928 she published her first detective story, The White Cottage Mystery, which had been serialised in the Daily Express. The following year, in The Crime at Black Dudley, she introduced the character who was to become the hallmark of her writing - Albert Campion. Her novels heralded the more sophisticated suspense genre: characterised by her intuitive intelligence, extraordinary energy and acute observation, they vary from the grave to the openly satirical, whilst never losing sight of the basic rules of the classic detective tale. Famous for her London thrillers, such as Hide My Eyes and The Tiger in the Smoke, Margery Allingham has been compared to Dickens in her evocation of the city's shady underworld. In 1927 she married the artist, journalist and editor Philip Youngman Carter. They divided their time between their Bloomsbury flat and an old house in the village of Tolleshunt D'Arcy in Essex. Margery Allingham died in 1966.
