The Fashion in Shrouds


Author: Margery Allingham
There is a skeleton in a dinner jacket. A corpse in a golden aeroplane. When another body turns up Albert Campion worries he may soon be number four… The deaths have been suspiciously convenient for Georgia Wells, femme fatale, charming actress, and the monstrous leader of a raffish entourage including Campion’s sister Valentine. Desperate to protect his sister, Campion is drawn into a world of high fashion and low morals. Before long he’s navigating glamour, lies, and blackmail to solve a three year old murder and prevent a fourth.
