I have read a couple of her "Campion" novels but like many from the so-called "Golden Age" she doesn't really work for me. I feel certain that your view of her writing is more positive. Vague memory suggests we may have read one of her books for the Cornflower Book Group.

Ah I see we did and I was (surprise) in the minority, though not totally alone, with my less than enthusiastic review of Tiger in the Smoke. Ah well :-)

Cornflower

Not to worry!

Tiger in the Smoke is one of the genuinely great pieces of writing in the genre. And Allingham can really write, unlike some in the field (golden age and present!).
