Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Francis Matthews

Mystery & Suspense • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1937

Margery Allingham would surely have adored the Albert Campion portrayed here. This is the seventeenth mystery featuring the unassuming detective that is narrated by Francis Matthews. In the village of Kepesake, an accident or murder has claimed the life of Pig Peters, whose funeral Campion attended several months before. This case, like the others, is perfect for Matthews's affinity for characterizations. He excels with eccentric country gentlemen, society ladies, ingenues or a hapless vicar and revels in the outrageous characters Allingham conjured up. Perhaps Matthews's crowning achievement is Lug, Campion's incomparable manservant. Irreverent and unpredictable, Lug and Campion make exceptional listening through the voice of Francis Matthews.
