Pearls Before Swine

Pearls Before Swine - Margery Allingham I'm not a terrific fan of Campion, but I am partial to this particular scenario: The return to civilian life after WWI or WWII. And it doesn't hurt that when I think back on these (it's been years since I read them), I now picture one of my favorite actors (Peter Davison) in the role.
