Description
A man is killed five months after his funeral, in a tale by "one of the greatest mid-20th-century practitioners of the detective novel" (Alexander McCall Smith). Private detective Albert Campion is summoned to the village of Kepesake to investigate a particularly distasteful death. The body turns out to be that of Pig Peters, freshly killed five months after his own funeral. Soon other corpses start to turn up, just as Peters's body goes missing. It takes all Campion's coolly incisive powers of detection to unravel the crime. The Case of the Late Pig is, uniquely, narrated by Campion himself. In Allingham's inimitable style, high drama sits neatly beside pitch-perfect black comedy. A heady mix of murder, romance, and the urbane detective's own unglamorous past make this an Allingham mystery not to be missed. "My very favourite of the four Queens of Crime is Allingham."--J. K. Rowling "Margery Allingham deserves to be rediscovered."--P.D. James
