I take it back While I still adore Sweet Danger beyond belief this book has completely and utterly stolen the crown of my favorite Campion book from itAmanda returns again you ll probably notice I tend to adore the books with her in them and this time Albert finally gets it what the reader has seen all along that she is the perfect partner for him in every sense of the word and he is head over heels in love with her Naturally it takes a bad case of traumatic amnesia to do it and his timing couldn t be worse Amanda weary of waiting for him to come around has fallen under the spell of a charming other man and wants out of their engagement of convenienceAs if that weren t bad enough some horrid Axis plan to undermine Britain s war effort and its sovreignty is under way and the only way to stop it is locked in Campion s very lost memory Meaning he has to not only figure out a way to win back the girl of his dreams but also to save the Empire while he s at it For a man unaccustomed to being helpless in matters personal or professional it s a humbling position to be in And uite frankly though I adore Campion just the way he is it s a humbling he sorely needs

Tance to His Majesty’s government before his accident On the run from the police and unable to recognise even his faithful servant or his beloved fiancee Campion struggles desperately to put the. I am a big fan of the whole Albert Campion series but I think this war time novel is probably my favourite because we see another side of the previously enigmatic Campion I ve just read it almost straight through after reading it several times before over the years and loved every minuteAs with many of the series it s of an adventure than a straight mystery and this one could have made a brilliant film noir At the start Albert wakes up in hospital having been hit over the head He doesn t even know his own name but he does have a vague memory that he has to do something vitally important to save the nation If only he could remember precisely whatApart from the thrilling Buchan style plot though there is also a strong romantic thread running through the book In his vulnerable state Campion suddenly realises how much long time fiancee Amanda means to him just when it seems as if he is about to lose her since she has grown bored of his half hearted courtship and is falling for another man Is it really too late to win her backThere is also a wonderful seuence where the wounded Campion fails to recognise his grumpily devoted sidekick LuggPublishers may try to claim that this is a good book to read even if you haven t read the previous novels but I can t agree I think a lot of its appeal lies in the contrast between the uncertain fumbling Campion as he is here and the flippant endlessly confident persona of the previous books

    This is one of the strongest of the Campion books almost pure thriller set during World War II Campion wakes not knowing anything even himself hears a discussion of coming murder charges and escapes into a non stop freefall of pretending he knows what the hell is going on with every second person he meets expecting him to save the world from a threat he can't even rememberStrongly recommended that both Sweet Danger and The Fash

    This little British mystery was not really my cup of tea; my mother loved it and passed it along to me I think if I'd read others in the series I would have enjoyed it The premise was interesting though a detective loses most of his memory yet knows that an impending event is about to change the course of the country and he must stop it Mo
