An impenetrable fog has descended on the streets of post-war London and, lurking in the shadows, a violent murderer is on the rampage. Gentleman detective, Albert Campion, is on the trail of a mysterious man posing as the dead husband of a war widow with a wealthy new fiance, but his expedition into the citys criminal underworld reveals something far more sinister than blackmail . . . Set in the atmospheric midst of a London pea souper, The Tiger in the Smoke is Margery Allinghams most sophisticated Golden Age crime novel, in which the darkness of the down-at-heel city fades against a piercing portrait of pure evil.
