it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction-crime

An absolutely wonderful read, told from the point of view of a jewel thief dragooned into Her Majesty's service for a diplomatically sensitive job. He has no special skills other than as a jewel thief, which makes the book even more enjoyable. I loved it - the description of London in the post-war years, the familiarity with the criminal argot and underworld generally and the elegance of the plot are all terrific.
