Twenty years ago, Roger Norton Vane went for a walk in the Thai jungle and never returned. Now, after years of wild speculation, he's officially being declared dead. At his memorial service, a man interrupts proceedings claiming to be Roger...

Roger's partner, Tim MacDonald, who was with him at the time of his disappearance, was due to pick up his inheritance but now 'Roger' has returned and wastes no time in making himself at home in his old flat; evicting Tim and coming up with a plan to prove his right to the money on offer.

This startling chain of events surprises crime writer Ethelred Tressider. He's been commissioned to write a biography about Roger and finds the person claiming to be him full of vague and scurrilous anecdotes. It soon becomes clear that many people wish Vane had stayed dead and that his tales had been buried with him...

The seventh book in the Elsie and Ethelred series, L.C.Tyler's Herring in the Smoke is a mystery that will delight fans of Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers and M.C. Beaton.
