    Epub Margery Allingham ✓ Look to the Lady PDF Ó Look to Kindle - ✓ look book, lady download, Look to epub, Look to the Lady KindleThis is my 3rd ‘Albert Campion’ mystery of 19 written by Margery Allingham and I’m growing to like the idiosyncratic adventurer cum detective with his blue blooded heritage and underworld connections Something of a hybrid between Sherlock Holmes and Lord Peter Wimsey he has a pinch of Shakespeare’s Prince Hal thrown in for good measureAkin to her contemporaries in the ‘Golden Age of Detective Fiction’ the author has little empathy for the lower classes which is an entertainment in its own right but there is an exception in the brilliant caricature Mr Lugg Campion’s disreputable batmanThe stories are somewhat fanciful but they just keep on the sensible side of not having to suspend disbelief too often or for too long and they are worth pursuing for their insight in the s and customs of the time upper class 1930s England Look to the Lady is a t
