Margery Allingham was born in London in 1904. The child of two writers, she grew up in the village of Layer Breton near Colchester and spent much of her childhood writing stories and plays. Her first novel, Blackkerchief Dick, was published in 1923 when she was only nineteen. Her breakthrough came in 1929 with the publication of The Crime at Black Dudley, which introduced Albert Campion, the gentleman sleuth who went on to become her most famous character and featured in eighteen further novels and numerous short stories, establishing her as one of the four queens of the Golden Age of crime. Allingham died in 1966 and her husband, Philip Youngman Carter, completed her final Campion novel, The Cargo of Eagles.. A gripping and suspenseful Albert Campion mystery by one of the queens of crime, Margery Allingham. This Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Sweet Danger features an afterword by international bestselling crime writer, Val McDermid. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. Aristocratic detective Albert Campion is called upon by the British government to establish ownership of the tiny, oil-rich principality of Averna on the Adriatic Coast. The titled but impoverished Fitton family lay claim to it, but the deeds are nowhere to be found. With the help of his loyal chums and sidekick, retired cat burglar Magersfontein Lugg, Campion must pit his wits against a criminal financier and his heavies in order to unearth the truth.

great book I was very pleased with this copy of Sweet Danger. I still enjoyed the book which I last read years ago. The copy I received was from the Macmillan CollectorsLibrary and was a most attractive book.
great fun one of her best...good plot, good pacing, good characters...charming heroine...a bit too much of the old boy network..but atmospheric and fantastic, as usual...recommended...the cover picture is not accurate, and there are some typos...oh well...
a classic i first got interested in Margery Allingham when i was about 17 years old when the t.v series ran. Sweet Danger is fundemental to the progress of the character of Campion. It is in Sweet Danger that he meets Amanda Fitton his wife to be for the first time. To have Philip Franks read this book is very pleasing to the ear. If i am listening at night i will fall asleep to it, which is a shame, so i treat myself and start to listen to it again. Mr Franks put the emphasis in the right places and also does different voices for the characters and the narration.
