This podcast is about Margery Allingham's 1955 novel The Beckoning Lady. A classic detective story with her enigmatic Mr Campion, set in a magical hazy midsummer, featuring more English eccentrics than you can shake a stick at, and the immortal Magersfontein Lugg. Also contains lessons for the reduction of teenage confusion, a remedy involving rhubarb leaves for the prevention of moon madness, and three corpses. For those who like their detection hidden in very polite suspense.
