The Tiger in the Smoke (Albert Campion Series #14)by Margery Allingham
Meg's marriage to self-made millionaire Geoffrey Levett promised to be one of the season's happiest events. Until Meg began receiving photos of her late husband Martin, who had presumably been killed in WWII. Meg called upon old friend Albert Campion to get to the bottom of things. For Campion, the case was cut and dry--until a brutal triple murder occurred.

Meg Eginbrodde has cause to be upset. On the eve of her wedding to Geoffrey Levett photographs of her first husband, who died in the war, suddenly start turning up. Someone wants her to think Martin Elginbrodde is still alive, and she doesn't know what to do. At a loss, Meg and Geoffrey turn to Albert Campion and Charlie Luke to help solve the problem. Campion and Luke are sure that Martin is dead, but they don't understand why someone is bent on proving otherwise. First an actor dies, then Geoffrey disappears, then a series of brutal killings points to someone who is desperately seeking information that Martin left for his wife before he died.
