9780140046168: The White Cottage Mystery

Classic Crime from the Golden Age. Margery Allingham is J.K. Rowling's favorite Golden Age author.

Eric Crowther collected secrets and used them as weapons. Delighting in nothing more than torturing those around him with what he knew, there is no shortage of suspects when he is found dead in the White Cottage. Chief Inspector Challenor and his son Jerry will have to look deep into everyone's past--including the victim's--before they can be sure who has pulled the trigger. The fact that Jerry is in love with one of the suspects, however, might complicate things.

The White Cottage Mystery was Margery Allingham's first detective story, originally written as a serial for the Daily Express in 1927 and published as a book a year later. This new Bloomsbury edition is the only US edition currently in print.

About the Author:

Margery Allingham is ranked among the most distinguished and beloved detective fiction writers of the 'Golden Age' alongside Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Ngaio Marsh. Allingham is J.K. Rowling's favorite Golden Age author, and Agatha Christie remarked that out of all the detective stories she remembers, Margery Allingham 'stands out like a shining light'. Born in London in 1904, Allingham published her first novel, Blackkerchief Dick, at the age of 19. The White Cottage Mystery was her first detective story, written first as a serial for the Daily Express in 1927.

From AudioFile:

The first of Margery Allingham's mysteries is a cozy with many suspects, each one with a motive more compelling than the last. A simply horrid murdered man makes the listener worry that one of the extremely likable cast has done him in. Francis Matthews romps though the dialects of England with not a word out of place. This makes the listener wish for more contretemps when Chief Inspector Challenor crosses the Channel with his son, Jerry, in pursuit of the suspects.
