Allingham has that rare gift in a novelist, the creation of characters so rich and so real that they stay with the reader forever' Sara Paretsky
A quiet, ruthless killer strikes in London's theatreland. Superintendent Luke thinks he has seen the pattern before. Mr Campion wonders what became of the old couple in the country bus who must have witnessed the crime . . .
The trail leads to an eccentric museum in west London, and to a scrapyard in the East End. As an exercise in suspense Hide My Eyes is the equal of The Tiger in the Smoke.
“Margery Allingham has worked her way up to a worthy place among the tiny hierarchy of front-rankers in the detective world”
“Allingham's work is always of the first rank”
