To Catch a Thief

The classic mystery later turned into an Academy Award-winning film by Alfred Hitchcock, this startling whodunit still resonates today with wit and danger.
“Le Chat” is a legend.  He is a mystery.  He is a jewel thief, famous and elusive for being able to swipe anything and get away clean.  He is John Robie, retired and living a quiet life, tending his rose garden in the South of France.
But his retirement plans are thrown for a loop when a series of robberies too closely resemble the work of “Le Chat,” and the police start digging into Robie’s past.  To keep himself free, and with the help of an equally mysterious young woman, John Robie will have to catch the true thief, before the police catch him.

    With no money, and no brains either, he isn’t much of a catch.
