9781849821568: Shadows in the Smoke

It is 1949. London has endured the war but is plagued by hardship. The Smoke remains tarnished with shattered, abandoned buildings and bombsites. It is a world fueled by coal and driven by steam. Soap is still on ration; fresh meat of any kind is as well. Butter on the black market costs thirty shillings a pound. Life's little luxuries-be it bed sheets or pantyhose or tins of peaches-have the scarcity value of the Crown Jewels. It's the perfect backdrop for Jethro―honest Cockney cat burglar, jewelry thief extraordinaire, womanizer, and rogue―to redistribute the wealth of the upper classes.

The day after thieving jewels from a mansion, headlines scream that the very man Jethro robbed was found dead after falling from the balcony of his home. It's deemed a homicide when the jewels are discovered missing, and Jethro sets off on a search through London's dark underworld to find out who is trying to frame him. Driven by a caustic, unforgettable voice, Shadows in the Smoke is a wonderfully entertaining and evocative read that touches upon police corruption at the very highest levels and the politics of London.

About the Author:

Tony Broadbent was born in Windsor, England. He was an art student in London in the late Sixties (from Revolver to Let It Be). He then worked as copywriter and creative director at some of the best advertising agencies in London, New York, and San Francis

Review:

Take London atmosphere as thick as a pea-souper, a rakish Cockney cat burglar with the soul of a poet, a plot that twists and turns like the darkest of London alleys, and you have a terrific read. Highly recommended!

(Deborah Crombie)

Tony Broadbent's style glints in this darkly humorous tale played out in the stark realism of post-war London, a welcome third in this one-of-a-kind series.

(Laurie R. King)
