The Tiger in the Smoke | [Margery Allingham]

The Tiger in the Smoke

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 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.

    "Classic detective fiction"

    I liked this much more than I expected - the old-fashionedness would get in the way, I thought. Now and again it does, but it ages remarkably well. The context is post-war with a sense of the world having undergone profound change, policemen and methods beginning to sound more like their modern counterparts. There's a twisting and turning plot well put together and revealed a drip at a time, some quirky characterization, and a touch of ghostliness to add spice - not everything is explained by science alone. The reader grew on me - a very posh voice, but one that fits the context perfectly, and he does middle class women especially well. I recommend it at a bargain price.

    "Just as good as I remember it"

    I read a lot of Margery Allingham in the 1970s and really enjoyed the books. In this reading I found the characterisation through voices fitted well with what I had imagined, and it was a real treat to 'meet' my old friends from these stories once again.
    A great accompaniment for a long journey!

    "Classic Detective Fiction #2"

    Elizabeth's review is absolutely spot-on, leaving me with little to say, except - wasn't Philip Franks the hubby of Catherine Zeta-Jones in 'The Darling Buds of May'? He is an excellent reader, and very entertaining as a dotty middle class spinster who almost steals the show!
