THE TIGER IN THE SMOKE (Albert Campion #14)
THE TIGER IN THE SMOKE - Albert Campion #14 Author:Margery Allingham A post-World War II setting in which a young war widow about to re-marry has received threats that her husband is still alive. The "smoke" is a slang word for London and the city is living up to its nickname: an unusual cold snap has combined with the air from the coalfires to produce the Great Smog, a long lasting fog, which is blanketing the c... more »ity in choking shadow. And lurking in those shadows is Jack Havoc, recently released from prison, who is on the prowl for a treasure he wants for himself. Havoc is by far the most dangerous villain that Albert Campion has ever encountered.
Said to be a favorite of J.K. Rowling, the well-known author of the Harry Potter series.
According to a review by Daniel George in the Broadsheet, this book is "not a standardized whodunit", it's a "novel in its own right - a good novel that at the same time is a first rate thriller."« less
