Summary
Colley Dawson leads a daring double life. On weekdays, he's an expert, and entirely law-abiding, locksmith with unequaled skills at designing impregnable safes and lives in a drab London flat with his mother. Come the weekends, collaborating with a shady antiques dealer who gives him information on potential victims, he's a thrillseeking - and devilishly criminal, cat burglar whose string of safecracking heists fuels the high life of a suave alternate identity who is eventually caught. While in prison, he is recruited by the British to break into a safe in Germany and photograph a list of their spies working in Britain
