Finally got around to reading this well-known 1952 Allingham book; she was an early star of the mystery genre. Anyone who can construct such an intricate, coherent plot has got to be admired, although I found the Britishisms and the slang made it hard going in the beginning. The "tiger" refers to the perpetrator and the "smoke" is London.
