    Jack Havoc, jail-breaker and knife artist, is on the loose on the streets of London once again. In the faded squares of shabby houses, in the furtive alleys and darkened pubs, the word is out that the Tiger is back in town, more vicious and cunning than ever. It falls to Albert Campion to pit his wits against the killer and hunt him down through the city's November smog before it is too late.

    Lorriee says: "Very very good, not great."
    "Love Allingham, but David Thorpe, not so much"

    Story
    Where does The Tiger in the Smoke rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Tiger in the Smoke as a book. I really wish it were the Francis Matthews version though.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The canon was definitely the most prominent and favorite character.


    Did David Thorpe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not really - it was sometimes hard to tell Campion from Luke. Other characters were okay.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - because I love the book.


    Any additional comments?

    If they ever release the Francis Matthews version, I would definitely pick it over the David Thorpe one. Francis Matthews will always be Campion to me.
