To Catch A Thief.

by David. Dodge

Publication: New York: Random House, 1952,

First edition. Fine in a clean dust jacket with minor wear to the spine ends and bottom edge of front cover. A number of jewelry robberies in Paris cause the police to seek the help of John Robie, an American and known to his fellow criminals as "le Chat" for his catlike acrobatics that marked his own forays before World War II. In fact, the police suspect that Robie might be the mysterious jewel thief who is plaguing the Cote d'Azur. Made into the Alfred Hitchcock 1955 film of the same name that starred Cary Grant as John Robie, Grace Kelly, and Jessie Royce Landis. A sharp copy.
