The slashing of a valuable painting at the renowned Ivory Gallery in London, followed by the murder of the proprietor's son-in-law, Robert, sets the stage for another finely tuned Allingham mystery. The proprietor's mother, 90-year-old Gabrielle Ivory, holds the key to the web of intrigue and danger that permeates the gallery.

Another lovely reading by Philip Franks of one of Allingham's books. This one does not feature Campion but it does feel like he could step out of the shadows at any time. Excellent characters and period details, dramatic tension and an exciting conclusion. I would definitely recommend this.
