Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. The Beckoning Lady is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. Uncle William has died, apparently of natural causes; a murdered man lies in a ditch , undiscovered for eight days; Mr Camopin receives a message in the language of flowers. The truth behind these events is sinister indeed, involving the Suffolk village of Pontisbright in a tangle of foul play, cross purposes and sharp practice. As well as Albert Campion and his wife the Lady Amanda , we meet Detective Chief Inspector Charlie Luke, this time helplessly in love; and Mr Magersfointen Lugg who, hitherto invulnerable himself nearly succumbs to the sweetest of all dangers. The Beckoning Lady has an intricate logic of character and motive, suspicion and detection. This vintage book would make a delightful addition to any library.
