Mr Campion’s Visit
by Mike Ripley
An intriguing case of higher education and lower morals: the entertaining new Albert Campion mystery.
Suffolk, 1970. Albert Campion is back in Black Dudley, once the scene of murder and mayhem but now home to the brand-new University of Suffolk Coastal. Appointed to the role of the university’s Visitor, Campion finds he has a curiously vague remit, but his initial visit to the concrete campus takes an unexpected turn when the body of charismatic Chilean professor Pascual Perez-Catalan, a rising star and genius scientist in the field of geochemistry, is fished out of the ornamental lake.
It seems Pascual was unpopular among his fellow academics and lecturers, his trail-blazing research taking up most of the university’s new computing capacity . . . and he was also a keen ladies man. Drawn into another puzzling murder, Campion must negotiate internal politics, seething jealousy and resentment, blackmail, betrayal and a phantom trumpeter as he searches for a ruthless killer.
Genre: Crime & Mystery
“Neatly combines humor and mystery … Fans of Allingham’s originals will be well pleased”
“Ripley has never been better at demonstrating his ability to plausibly extrapolate from Margery Allingham’s Campion novels than in his fourth outing for her gentleman sleuth . . . Allingham aficionados will be enthralled.”
Publishers Weekly Starred Review of Mr Campion's War
“Ripley has . . . continued to publish the same kind of wonderfully genteel, appealingly old-fashioned, gently humorous, always entertaining, and eminently readable stories that became Allingham's signature.”
