Albert Campion finds himself back at the scene of his first crime. Forty years after the events at Black Dudley, Campion is given the title of Visitor at the University of Coastal Suffolk. Unfortunately, murder soon follows and Campion is again challenged with the job of finding a murderer.
Again Champion delights me! I love this character, and he is safe in the hands of Mr. Ripley. The intelligent, witty dialogue Campion and his colleagues are known for abounds in this book.
The setting of a university campus in the 1970s is well described (young, contemptuous radicals and ugly buildings made of concrete). Campion never feels out of place or out of date. Well plotted, with just enough red herrings to keep you guessing.
My thanks to NetGalley and Severn House for the advanced reader’s copy of this book made available for my review.
