London bank robber Frank Mason has never pulled off his own crime job without the help of his mastermind wife Elsie. 

Trapped in a loveless marriage, a loveless affair with his mistress Linda, and with the pressure of Elsie’s gangster father looming over him, Frank needs a miracle to maintain his reputation in the criminal underworld. 

But luckily Frank has The Plan: a full-blown, international crime caper.

Strong and varied characters, a fine period mystery with a clever plot.
