The Tiger in the Smoke is part of Margery Allingham’s Albert Campion mystery series.

 

A fog is creeping through the weary streets of London – so too are whispers that the Tiger is back in town, undetected by the law, untroubled by morals. And the rumours are true: Jack Havoc, charismatic outlaw, knife-wielding killer and ingenious jail-breaker, is on the loose once again.

As Havoc stalks the smog-cloaked alleyways of the city, it falls to Albert Campion to hunt down the fugitive and put a stop to his rampage – before it’s too late…

More than an outstanding mystery, Margery Allingham has created a major novel that can rank with any of the great thrillers in English literature. It conveys an understanding of goodness and evil more assuredly than any of them.

The Tiger in the Smoke was first published in 1952.
