Summary

Albert Campion is summoned to the village of Kepesake to investigate a particularly distasteful death. The body turns out to be that of Pig Peters, freshly killed five months after his own funeral. Soon other corpses start to turn up, just as Peters's body goes missing. It takes all Campion's coolly incisive powers of detection to unravel the crime.

Case of the Late Pig, full marks!

This terrific story, read by Philip Franks was hugely enjoyable. Franks is a master of his craft and did this classic book full justice. I only wish all the Allingham stories had been recorded by him.
