Item description for Spectres in the Smoke (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Jethro Mysteries) by Tony Broadbent...

The Nazis have only recently been routed, but in England, Fascism is becoming fashionable once again; the odious Sir Oswald Mosley has been vigorously recruiting members to his New Order of Britain party, with the aim of bringing down the Labour government. And with chronic shortages making a misery of post-war life, he's having a disquieting degree of success. Anxious to spoke his wheel, the secret service turns once again to Jethro, Cockney cat-burglar extraordinaire. They appeal to his pride, to his patriotism, to his preference for staying out of jail. Surely he wouldn't mind lifting a few vital documents from Mosley's headquarters? Jethro's an obliging fellow and the finest "creeper" in London, but even with a hand from Ian Fleming (in a cameo appearance), larceny is never as simple as one might like to think.

Reviews - What do customers think about Spectres in the Smoke (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Jethro Mysteries)?

Read a mystery and learn some history  Jan 25, 2008
Spectres in the Smoke is the first of the Jethro novels I have read. Like some of the other FelonyandMayhem titles it not only is a good mystery but gives a history lesson of Britain in Post WWII, Combined with stories like The Cambridge Theorem,and A Gathering of Saints it helps provide insight into the world of espionage and state secrets that helped shaped Britain and the world after WWII. The title character in Spectres is blessed with an unusual set of skills which get put to use by the British intelligence services to help save post war England from radical extremists. Jethro is a likeable character with a coterie of friends and associates who pop up at times in the story to provide help and information to help move the story along. Even though he is working for the Eton/Cambridge boys to save Britain from extremists he still manages to impart a criminal mind to his job which helps him succeed. I look forward to reading more of Jethro's adventures as this one was so enjoyable
Post-WW II London Intrigue  Dec 10, 2007
The second book in the Jethro series is better than the first. The plot is more sophisticated and the range of characters introduced in the first book become more fully developed in this welcome sequel. There is tremendous period detail on every page and fascinating insight on what it was like to be in London after the war. It certainly was not all tea and crumpets for the common people. When you read this book, you'll not only be entertained, but educated as well.
