THE CHINA GOVERNESS by Margery Allingham

THE CHINA GOVERNESS

KIRKUS REVIEW

A novel of suspense rather than a mystery story -- but the contribution made by the ineffable Campion and Inspector Luke place this in the class of detection for most comers. A strange and secret family-the Kinnits, who protect their sacred name from the press, find themselves involved in revelations about an adopted son, about an ancient murder, and a modern counterpart, about confused identities -- and their old weapon falls them. Woven through concurrent investigations there is a romance -- and an elderly household retainer provides the comic touch. Dependable Allingham.
