In the words of Nero Wolfe, "Very satisfactory." Good mystery, great characters, wonderful reader. What more can one ask? Good classic cozy mystery. ( )

Listened to as an audiobook from Audible. Not entirely convinced by the narrator (David Thorpe), who did a good enough job, but there was just *something* I couldnt put my finger on, especially at the beginning. Perhaps it's simply that I am now too used to James Saxon reading Ngaio Marsh books that I'm used to a certain timbre of voice doing a reading.

Anyway, onto the story. Campion gets involved with a theatre group, who believe themselves to be at the receiving end of more and more "pranks", ranging from delivery of offensive flowers behind the scenes to stalking in the country house retreat. The success of the current show, and the pressure of bringing in a second show on time, budget etc is making things worse, and is making people crack under the strain. Jimmy is out driving one evening, only for a recent addition to the show to fall off the bridge in front of him and under the wheels of his car. Initially everyone is convinced that it's suicide, but as time goes by, people become convinced that it's murder, and the first of several.

Campion has another problem: he has fallen in love with Sutane's wife (and maybe she's in love with him), and finds himself paralysed in what needs to happen next, especially when the body count starts mounting up.

Now I dont know whether it's an issue with the story, or the delivery, or something else, but I have already forgotten much of what went on in this book now that I've come to write the review. Was fairly engrossing at the time, but didnt remain with me long enough to write a decent review - may have to listen to it again

I did like this very much. The country house Murder is my favorite trope. A real plus here is the musical comedy theater touches, along with some pretty strong characterization. Especially charming is the interaction of Lugg and a little girl.
The downside for me was that I identified the killer early on. ( )

I found this mostly plodding, and too many intelligent eyes with too little intelligent behavior. The ageism is appalling and the sexism is uncomfortable as this is written by a woman. Still, for a Brits in Big House mystery, the characters are unusual with appropriate quirks. I just didn't enjoy the house party. ( )

Dancers in Mourning by Margery Allingham is the 9th book in her series featuring Albert Campion and was originally published in 1937. I really enjoyed this one as it merged the world of musical comedy with a country house murder. Campion is asked to check out a series of nasty practical jokes that are being played on Jimmy Sutane, the famous dancer who is starring in a production of “The Buffer”, based on the fictional memoirs of Campion’s friend William Faraday.

These nasty jokes are escalating and while Campion and a number of others are spending the weekend at Sutane’s country home, the death of a co-star occurs. Although ruled an accidental death, Campion isn’t so sure. He, himself is struggling with this case, as he has fallen in love with Linda, the wife of the star. He tries to remove himself, but then a home made bomb takes a terrible toll and Scotland Yard asks for his assistance.

In Dancers in Mourning the readers get to see a different Campion. Instead of the jaunty, unflappable man-about-town, he is preoccupied with his feelings, not wanting to hurt Linda yet afraid that her husband could be implicated in the crimes. Dancers in Mourning is destined to be a personal favorite of mine for a number of reasons but mostly for showing us a new side to Campion as he deals with his emotional uncertainty. ( )

When Mr. William Faraday sat down to write his memoirs after fifty-eight years of blameless inactivity he found the work of inscribing the history of his life almost as tedious as living it had been and so, possessing a natural invention coupled with a gift for locating the easier path, he began to prevaricate a little upon the second page, working up to downright lying on the sixth and subsequent folios.

Hitherto he had been an observer only in the many dramas which he had investigated, and that circumstance had given him an unfounded sense of superiority. Tonight he felt cold and disillusioned; no longer shocked but frankly despairing to find himself both so human and so miserably unhappy.
