Golden Age

Date Finished: April 1, 2015

Campion returns to England after several years of WWII espionage service. Due to Lugg, he is stuck in London trying to solve a mystery and unable to return home to the wife and child. This is the first Campion in four years and it would be another four until the next. This is a good evocation of WWII London and a good return to Campion.
