Our Margery Allingham set includes Traitor's Purse and The Tiger in the Smoke.

Traitor's Purse

It also alludes to the city itself, a city in which it is but a step from the safety of a brightly lit living room to a world of secret doorways, hidden basements and deadly intrigue. ‘The Tiger’ is Jack Havoc – malevolent and graceful, with a handsome face whose ‘ruin lay in something quite peculiar’. His ghastly charisma is wonderfully evoked by illustrator Finn Campbell-Notman

About the Margery Allingham

Margery Allingham is pre-eminent among the writers who brought the detective story to maturity in the decades between the two world wars. She was born in London in 1904, and her first novel was published when she was seventeen, with her first detective story, The White Cottage Mystery, following in 1928. Her next book, The Crime at Black Dudley (1929), introduced the character who was to become the hallmark of her writing: Albert Campion. She died in 1966.
