From the PublisherPraise for Spectres in the Smoke
"In Spectres in the Smoke, Tony Broadbent well and truly claims post-war London as his manor. With a view from the rooftops through the eyes of Jethro the cat-burglar—-a most likeable rogue if ever there was one—-we are steeped in the characters, color, and history that followed Britain's finest hour. Spectres in the Smoke is a page-turner that takes us from the inner sanctum of Britain's Secret Service to underworld territories run by the kings of crime. With royalty gone bad along with the communists and fascists for good measure, it's a broth of intrigue that you will not put down until the last page. I loved every minute of it!"
—-Jacqueline Winspear, author of Maisie Dobbs, Birds of a Feather, and Pardonable Lies
"Fans of Tony Broadbent's memorable debut, The Smoke, will be delighted to find his (not quite) reformed cat burglar hero back in action and in trouble up to his Cockney ears on the colorful streets of post-war London. If you enjoy the adventures of Raffles, The Saint, and Richard Hannay, this is for you."
