Albert Campion is the central character in a series of crime fiction novels and short stories by British author Margery Allingham. Campion was apparently created as a parody of Dorothy L. SayersLord Peter Wimsey character but eventually developed his own personality. Like Wimsey, he is also a British gentleman. He is described as thin, blond, wears glasses, affable, inoffensive and bland but is also a man of authority and action.

The Albert Campion series began in 1929 with the novel The Crime at Black Dudley (aka The Black Dudley Murder). The series ran for 21 novels (including two written by Allingham’s husband). The series ended in 1971 with the novel Mr. Campion’s Quarry by Allingham and Youngman Carter. Below is a list of Margery Allingham’s Albert Campion books in order of when they were originally released:
