The first line of the first story in Allingham Margery's Mr. Campion's Lucky Day and Other Stories:

Dornford killed Fellowes somewhere in Australia. Apart from the fact that it was a reprehensible sort of thing to do anyway, it was particularly unpleasant because they were friends and it was done for gain.


The rest of the book goes pretty much like that. I enjoyed reading the stories; no masterpieces there, I think, and perhaps closer to the third than to the first rank of detective/ghost/etc short fiction, but well-crafted and pleasant.
