by Margery Allingham
1937 / 170 pages (Kindle – no pages)
#9 in the Albert Campion series
rating B-  / classic crime (amateur sleuth who-done-it)

Chosen by a group (never would have done this one on my own).  Allingham is an English author I’d never heard of before but would definitely have enjoyed in my Agatha Christie days.  This book in the series of 9 was made into a BBC show.

Pig has been murdered there and it turns out several of the other men had bad feelings toward him.  >>>>MORE>>>>
