Summary (From the publisher):

The author who never writes the same book twice is apt to make a reputation very slowly, but once it is established and the novels come to be re-read, the growing pattern is an added attraction. In her frank preamble to the pre-sent collection Miss Allin gham discloses her consistent purpose and sheds a new light upon a writer whose steady rise in popular esteem has been as gentle and unobtrusive as the character of her detective. Gathered here are three of her most successful novels, each typical of a different stage in the development of both writer and principal character. The three unabridged books are: The Case of the Late Pig: In which the youthful Mr. Campion and invaluable Mr. Lugg set out to investigate the shadiest of funerals. This book, although a favourite, has never before appeared in hard covers and is the first to be told by Mr. Campion himself. Dancers in Mourning: A more mature Mr. Campion loses his heart whilst enquiring into a memorable mystery of the theatre. The Tiger in the Smoke: For many people this is the author's finest book. Mr. Campion and Chief Detective Inspector Charles Luke engage on a tiger hunt through the stone forests of London. There is also, in the toe of the stocking, a short story for Christmas ["On Christmas Day in the Morning"].
