Summary

"Albert dear, we are going to have a quiet family party at home here for the holiday, just ourselves and the dear village. It would be such fun to have you with us."

Faced with an invitation he can't refuse, Albert Campion is spending Christmas with the Turretts at Pharaoh's Court, along with the Welkins and Mike Peters, a young man trying to shake off his father's reputation. But when Santa Claus is implicated in a burglary, Campion's skills are put to use.

The Man with the Sack

A very pleasant little whodunit. I like to listen to Christmas themed books this time of year and this one was a pleasant start.

A little amusing, very predictable.

If you are an Allingham fan this is a bit of fluff you might want to read. I would not normally re-listen, but will share with my car poolers. Very undemanding.

Excellently narrated Campion short story

David Thorpe does an enjoyable narration of this Albert Campion Christmas short story. The voice of Campion is perfection. The story, though short, is good. Uncle Albert saves the day and routs the the thieves.
