THE TIGER IN THE SMOKE - Margery Allingham
A young war widow begins receiving photographs of her presumed dead husband. The husband was supposedly killed during the D Day landings but these photographs have him walking around London within the last week.
She goes to Albert Campion to have him attempt to locate what is almost certainly her husband.
From this the story explodes into dealing with a stone cold killer, professional burglars and a decent mystery.
This is great fun, an adventure with the usual witty dialogue from Allinghams wonderful characters. She has the City of London as one of the main characters in this book with the heavy fogs adding atmosphere throughout the story.
