The Mind Readers is the last book completely written by Margery Allingham; her husband finished up Cargo of Eagles (next in the series). So basically I've come to the end of the original Allinghams and it's a sad day. However, the good news is that I have each and every Campion story on my British reading room shelves (and all of the PBS dvds!) that I can read again if I so choose. It has a distinct science-fiction flavor and it just didn't seem like Allingham's strong suit. It was decent, but definitely not a page-turner.
The charm of Allingham was that while Campion was sometimes overly smart, he was much more relatable to the reader than Holmes, Wimsey, Poirot, or Holmes. Indeed many of us know someone a lot like Campion (while a few of the more conceited one might think they are Campion). This means that the Campion stories themselves were relatable, we can see them actually occurring. This story isn't possible.

Margery Louise Allingham (20 May 1904 – 30 June 1966) was an English novelist from the "Golden Age of Detective Fiction", best remembered for her hero, the gentleman sleuth Albert Campion. Initially believed to be a parody of Dorothy L. Sayers' detective Lord Peter Wimsey, Campion matured into a strongly individual character, part-detective, part-adventurer, who formed the basis for 18 novels and many short stories.
