    Three cheers for Margery Allingham With each book her creation the bespectacled deceptively foolish Albert Campion becomes better and better Look to the Lady the third novel in this Golden Age series is the best I’ve read yet Campion the pseudonym for a disinherited younger son and self proclaimed “junior adventurer” reunites an estranged father and son — and just in time The pair are the caretakers of a priceless Chalice they’re

    Although an improvement on Allingham’s first two Campion books this outing still suffers from many of the flaws so obvious in its predecessors Campion himself is shown to do little actual detecting or deducing He just “knows” things often because of an immense circle of informants who for no particularly obvious reason have w
