Mr. Campion’s Falcon
The second of two “Albert Campion” novels written by Margery Allingham’s husband, Phillip Youngman Carter, after Allingham’s death, Mr. Campion’s Falcon was originally published in 1971, an astonishing 42 years after Campion made his debut in The Crime at Black Dudley.
Mr. Campion’s final adventure points (like so many good mysteries) to the past, as first an archeologist is murdered and then a geologist disappears. The latter has a motley crew of friends, all ham-handedly eager to “help” Mr. Campion with his inquiries, and there’s also a supremely dastardly villain on hand. It’s a pity to say farewell to the estimable Albert, but he leaves on a high note indeed.
