A visiting friend once said to Margery Allingham: "My dear Marge, although you write crime novels, you do have a dainty drawing room!" "What did she expect?" Margery wondered. "Did she think I would keep a corpse under my sofa?"
This biography was researched in the very room where Margery Allingham worked, and was written with the full co-operation of Margery's sister, her secretary and her housekeeper. It was first published in 1991. Since then, however, new material has becoma available, including a revalationary collection of letters and the startling truth about her husband's relationship with the writer Nancy Spain. Was there a corpse underneath the sofa? The book's new title, new introduction and afterword invite the reader to look again.
