    " "The Smoke" is fogbound post-WWII London. "The Tiger" is the truly evil Jack Havoc, who has escaped from prison by feigning mental illness to get sent to a psychiatrist, whom he fools and then murders. In his quest to get hold of a priceless hidden treasure, he doesn't care how many people he kills. This thriller, one of my favorites, is notable for its graphic contrast of good, personified in the saintly Canon Avril (protagonist Albert Campion's uncle), and evil, personified in Havoc. There's also a most entertaining Dickensian cast of cockney characters. It's well worth reading and rereading. "

    " Really great classic mystery. Something about it reminds me of and C.S. Lewis's That Hideous Strength and the fiction of Charles Wallace. It's set after the close of WWII. A young war widow is engaged to be married again, and suddenly begins receiving photos that seem to indicate her first husband is still alive. An intricate mystery follows, with some great characters,suspenseful plotting, and graceful writing. "

    " This is the a talented writer. I found myself enjoying her turn of phrase as much as the characters and the plot. The character of Avril is as lovingly drawn as any I have encountered. definitely worth your time. "

    " About the only thing I liked about this book was the title. The writing style was annoying and intrusive. The characters were frustrating and the plot was at best fair. "
