Hide My Eyes is part of Margery Allingham’s Albert Campion mystery series.

In this classic Allingham, private detective Albert Campion finds himself hunting down a serial killer in London’s theatre-land.

A spate of murders leaves him with only two baffling clues: a left-hand glove and a lizard-skin letter-case. These minimal clues and a series of peculiar events sets Campion on a race against time that takes him from an odd museum of curiosities hidden in a quiet corner of London to a scrapyard in the East End.

Allingham shows her dark edge in Hide My Eyes and evokes the sights, sounds, and inimitable atmosphere of fifties London.

Hide My Eyes was first published in 1958 and has also been released as Tether's End and Ten Were Missing
