"Good Allingham, good war-spy thriller"

Mike Ripley has made an excellent job in writing so-called continuity novels in the style of Margery Allingham, a queen of the golden age of crime fiction and the creator of Albert Campion, toff gentleman-detective. In Mr Campion’s War, the hero is celebrating his 70th birthday in a posh London hotel. A few foreigners not known to the other guests are among those invited. Campion marks the occasion by revealing something he had hitherto kept secret — his role in the French resistance to the Nazi occupation during the war... Good Allingham, good war-spy thriller.
