Margery Allingham Winning Story on the Website

Peter Guttridge’s winning entry, The Box-Shaped Mystery, for the short story competition run in conjunction with the Margery Allingham Society is now on this website.

As well as being entertaining and a fabulous demonstration of matching Margery Allingham’s description of how a mystery should be ‘box-shaped’, it’s also useful as an indication of the standard of prize-winning stories. Enjoy!
