Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1938

Allingham's Albert Campion ranks with the other legendary detectives in the golden age of cozy mysteries, Lord Peter Wimsey, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Campion's outrageous adventures always involve a grand array of colorful characters, and FASHION is no exception. A set of fashion and stage figures, including Campion's own sister, gets involved in a series of deaths too coincidental to be ignored. Frances Matthews has played the quirky, self-effacing detective in nearly twenty audiobooks, and the wildly original characters are his stock in trade. Some are over the top--as Allingham surely meant--and Matthews has a unique voice or accent for everyone. Lines are delivered with perfect timing, deadpan and hilarious. Campion couldn't ask for a better master of ceremonies. R.F.W. [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
