    I picked this book up on a lark I happened to be in a book store in Door County and saw this mystery on the cheap paperback shelf and thought I haven't read a good mystery in a while I'll give it a tryKeep in mind that Traitor's Purse is one

    This is one of the strongest of the Campion books almost pure thriller set during World War II Campion wakes not knowing anything even himself hears a discussion of coming murder charges and escapes into a non stop freefall of pretending he knows what the hell is going on with every second person he meets expecting him to save the world from a threat he can't even rememberStrongly recommended that both Sweet Danger and The Fashion in Shro

    After reading about her brother Philip Allingham in his excellent 'Cheapjack' I finally got round to sampling some Margery Allingham ‘Traitor's Purse’ is a book I'd identified some time ago as a good entry point Before reading

    I am a big fan of the whole Albert Campion series but I think this war time novel is probably my favourite because we see another side of the previously enigmatic Campion I've just read it almost straight through after reading it several times before over the years and loved every minuteAs with many of the series it's of an adventure than a straight mystery and this one could have made a brilliant film noir At the start

    This little British mystery was not really my cup of tea; my mother loved it and passed it along to me I think if I'd read others in the series I would have enjoyed it The premise was interesting though a detective loses most of his memory yet knows that an impending event is about to change the course of the country and he must stop it Most of the story focuses on how he puzzles it out but will he be on time to avert disaster? In the end

    A good adventuremystery book to pass the time with Not my favourite Campion Allingham starts off strong with a new and very inventive twist to the usual plot structure Unfortunately she doesn't seem to carry the tension through to the end Still worth perusing

    Had only ever read snippets of Margery Allingham before and always as part of 'O' Level test papers; so had never thought I'd like her much Saw a cheap copy of 'Traitor's Purse' in the local secondhand bookshop so in for a penny in for a pound £2 in fact bought it I thought all my ancient prejudices were going to be confirmed after
