Deadly Duo: Two Novellas

Deadly Duo: Two Novellas

by Margery Allingham




Wanted: Someone Innocent follows the impoverished Miss Gillian Brayton whose luck begins to change when a school reunion reacquaints her with a now-famous old friend, Rita Fayre. When Rita offers Gillian a job, she accepts immediately. Swept away in Rita's Rolls Royce, Gillian imagines the glamour of her new life as nurse to a wounded war hero.

The reality, however, is less than luxurious. Ignored by the staff, overwhelmed by the work, Gillian is sure things can't get any worse. That is until Rita is found dead...


In Last Act, aging French actress Margot Rob has taken up residence in a British country home along with her two grandsons, her servants, and a young woman she has taken on as her ward.

When Margo turns up dead, there is no shortage of suspects: could it be the grandson who, rumour has it, was about to be disinherited? Or the long-time servant fed up of catering to the eccentric actress? But in a country home murder, there's always more than one suspect... so who killed Margot Rob?
