Sweet Danger by Margery Allingham (Hardcover)
Sweet Danger by Margery Allingham is a gripping and suspenseful mystery by one of the queens of crime.
Margery Louise Allingham is ranked among the most distinguished and beloved detective fiction writers of the Golden Age alongside Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Ngaio Marsh. Allingham is J.K. Rowling’s favorite Golden Age author and Agatha Christie said that out of all the detective stories she remembers, Margery Allingham “stands out like a shining light.” The Allingham family retained a house on Mersea Island, a few miles from Layer Breton, and it was here that Margery found the material for the adventure story Blackkerchief Dick (1923), which was published when she was just nineteen. She went on to pen multiple novels, some of which dealt with occult themes and some with mystery, as well as writing plays and stories – her first detective story, The White Cottage Mystery, was serialized in the Daily Express in 1927.
