9780099513285: Cargo of Eagles: A Campion Mystery

Two roads lead to Saltey, an ancient hamlet on the Essex estuary: one is fast, frequented by mods and rockers on holiday weekends; the other is a dust track, almost hidden by centuries of misuse by black-hearted smugglers. But in this quintessential thriller, Albert Campion discovers that few roads lead out. For Saltey holds a secret rich and mysterious enough to trap all who enter the village, despite someone’s best endeavours to terrorize, murder and raise the very devil to keep that secret to themselves.

About the Author:

Margery Allingham was a prolific writer who sold her first story at age eight and published her first novel before turning twenty. She went on to become one of the preeminent writers who helped bring the detective story to maturity in the 1920s and 1930s.

From AudioFile:

The village of Salty has an unsavory reputation. It's not only a notorious smugglers' haven, but also a dangerous backwater linked with tales of demons, pirates and murder. Allingham's hero, Albert Campion, has a secret interest in the place as do an American historian and a beautiful doctor. This is a fine, old-fashioned English mystery with classic twists in plot and colorful, local characters. Matthews does far more than read the tale; he dramatizes the action, as well. It's hard to believe one actor creates so many different voices. Each character, from the arrogant young bikers to the suave Mr. Campion, is perfectly portrayed with just the right intonation and accent. Listeners will delight in their visit to Salty. D.L.G.
