    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Suffolk, 1970. Albert Campion is back in Black Dudley, once the scene of murder and mayhem but now home to the brand-new University of Suffolk Coastal. Appointed to the role of the university's Visitor, Campion finds he has a curiously vague remit, but his initial visit to the concrete campus takes an unexpected turn when the body of charismatic Chilean professor Pascual Perez-Catalan, a rising star and genius scientist in the field of geochemistry, is fished out of the ornamental lake. It seems Pascual was unpopular among his fellow academics and lecturers, his trail-blazing research taking up most of the university's new computing capacity . . . and he was also a keen ladies man. Drawn into another puzzling murder, Campion must negotiate internal politics, seething jealousy and resentment, blackmail, betrayal and a phantom trumpeter as he searches for a ruthless killer."--Publisher description.

Ripley neatly combines humor and mystery in his sixth outing for Margery Allingham's gentleman sleuth, Albert Campion (after 2018's Mr. Campion's War). In 1970, Campion returns to the scene of an old crime, a house called Black Dudley, where his first case was set. Black Dudley is now part of a new school, the University of Suffolk Coastal, where Campion has been tapped by one of the university's main supporters, the Bishop of St. Edmondsbury, to serve as the Visitor, an ombudsman position. When a faculty member, Professor Pascual Perez-Catalan is stabbed in the back on university grounds, Campion investigates. The victim was researching ways to predict the presence in the earth of valuable minerals and metals. At one point, Campion teases the local inspector by suggesting that the suspects all be gathered in the library, explaining that this is a request he has always wanted to make. Having the sleuth's family members, who played prominent parts in earlier books, largely offstage allows Ripley to focus on the endearing Campion. Fans of Allingham's originals will be well pleased.
