An impenetrable fog has descended on the streets of post-war London and, lurking in the shadows, a violent murderer is on the rampage.

Astonishingly beautiful prose, but not really my thing. I've always meant to read Allingham, as those in crime fiction circles speak very highly of her, and now I see why. Her writing is majestic in its beauty, her characters filled with an admittedly strange and philosophical, but nevertheless palpable inner life, and her sense of irony delightful. I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed the book overly, since it's a kind of British action noir that is not my scene (I've never been into the Hammett/James schools of crime fiction) but one can't deny the richness of the words.

I never could get into this one of Allingham's mysteries. It is supposed to be a more literary thing, and I find I prefer her light-hearted ones (Mystery Mile or The Fear Sign). I didn't care about any of these characters, and I really had to struggle to finish this one.

One reviewer compares it to Dostoyevsky; I found Crime and Punishment much more interesting than this novel. In Crime and Punishment, a number of things really grabbed me; here, nothing did.

Clearly, YMMV. ( )

Campion investigates a case that he considers more of a game hunt: the notorious criminal Jack Havoc is in London, stalking the fog-filled streets, on the hunt for treasure—a treasure belonging to the late fiancé of someone in Campion’s family. I enjoyed the scenes involving Campion, Lugg, Amanda, and Rupert; they are an entertaining bunch. And it was interesting to have the theme of presumed-dead suitors threatening to return from the grave in both this and the last mystery I read, Agatha Christie’s Murder in Mesopotamia. Comparing the two authors, I found Allingham’s style heavier, but she is definitely worth reading when one is in the right mood. ( )

Beautiful writing, but the characters kept doing really dumb things, like teen-agers in a horror flick. ( )
