Synopsis

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 fiancé, but his expedition into the city's 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 Allingham's most sophisticated Golden Age crime novel, in which the darkness of the down-at-heel city fades against a piercing portrait of pure evil.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Tiger in the Smoke features an introduction by the New York Times bestselling author of detective fiction, Sara Paretsky.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
