Golden Age

by Sharon Tucker

Of the four Queens of Golden Age Mystery, Margery Allingham has been the least easy read. I suspect it’s because her Albert Campion comes across on the page in some of the early novels as so free of intriguing quirks that, to the uninitiated, he seems rather a milquetoast. However, he seldom fails to come across as arch, annoyingly omniscient, and he doesn’t even use his own name in his adventures due to hush-hush royal connections.

This week we have 3 more Golden Age mysteries from Penguin authors-The Royal Assassin by Kate Parker, Gilded Grave by Shelley Freydont, and No Comfort for the Lost by Nancy Herriman. Details on how to win copies of all 3 books at the end of this post along with a link to purchase them.
