Free read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ò Margery Allingham

In this Ms Allingham's last novel the action revolves around Saltey for centuries a hidey hole for all manner of villains Astonishingly it is the early 1960s and Saltey like many English coastal towns is being over run. Cargo of Eagles was finished after Margery Allingham's death by her husband Youngman Carter who apparently completed it based on notes that Allingham left behind Sadly the last of the original series if you count this one because Allingham started it leaves a lot to be desired I think it suffers from too many tangents leading to a bit of tedium for the reader I found myself wanting to just get through it which is really sad if you think about it for a minute The basic plot was good but it took SO long to get to a resolution that at the end I actually didn't care about it Brief decription no spoilers The small village of Saltey captures the interest of uite a few characters a doctor who has recently inherited a house from a near stranger; an American historian who is spending a year in Britain doing research on approaches to London in the 17th and 18th centuries; several motorcycle gangs and some unsavory characters as well Saltey used to be home to smugglers and pirates and at one time was visited by a demon Now it seems it is also home to a murderer who has a secret to keep but it's one that Campion must figure out to help solve his own secret mission I would recommend it probably to people who are working on finishing the series but likely not to others It normally doesn't take me long to finish one of these novels but this one was just not up to par with most of the other books in the series

review Cargo of Eagles

Cargo of EaglesBy teenage gangs But that's not why Albert Campion now astonishingly in late middle age has persuaded Lugg to take up residence His interest lies in part with the just out of prison thief who has in time honored tra. The later Campion mysteries tend to leave me cold but this one was an adventurous romp in the style of the early novels I discovered that I purchased my copy back in 1993 and I regret that it took me this long to read it Highly recommended

Cargo of Eagles Read & Download ↠ 7 í In this Ms Allingham's last novel the action revolves around Saltey for centuries a hidey hole for all manner of villains Astonishingly it is the early 1960s and Saltey like many English coastal towns is being over run by teenage gangs But that's not why Albert Campion — now astonishingly in late middle Dition gone to ground in Saltey But his most passionate interest is reserved for the curious newly revived story of the Saltey DemonAll books in the Albert Campion series are standalone titles and can be read in any ord. Excellent It's very well written and if the publishers had not mentioned that it was finished by PYC I would not have caught onto itThis book like it's predecessor is of a spy story than a whodunnitBut this is a fitting finale to Mr Campions adventures as it has something of everythingIt has piratestreasuresdead bodies adventurespies and romanceIt has a lot of Mr LuggOates and Mr Campion himself though the lightheartedness of the early Campions is a thing of the distant pastIt starts of a bit slow and till the last 3 chapters it does not add up to much as clues that are revealed are totally unrelated apparently unless you know what Mr Campion knew But this is not a fair play whodunnit and the last chapters makes up for any frustration accumulated during the earlier chaptersThe creation of the localepeople and the atmosphere is masterly done as usual and even though I read this book during weekdays across 7 separate sessionsI never felt I had left SalteyThis novel reminded me of books by Gavin Lyall and Desmond Bagley and left me wondering about the versatility of Mrs Allingham The best of the 4 mystery ueens in my opinion
