Description
Brought up in one of Londons famed street markets, Jethro the cat burglar is as smart as he is streetwise, which is just as well, since he always needs all of his wits about him to pull off the perfect job without getting caught. After he breaks into th Soviet embassy and steals jewels belonging to the ambassadors wife, Jethro comes to the attention of His Majestys Secret Service, who forces him to revisit the embassy to retrieve a code book for them. But this is all just a setup for a thief to catch a thief, and it leads to a deadly game of cat and mouse to see who will get to Jethro first: Londons gangsters, MI5, or one of the Soviets most formidable secret agents.
