Using her popular Tsubuki Nightclub as a headquarters, High Pockets and her staff serve spiked drinks to Japanese officers and seduce military information out of them. During the day, Claire smuggles contraband in her bra ('high pockets') past bribed Japanese guards paid to look the other way, into imprisoned American POWs - money, food and clothes - saving countless lives.
"Agent High Pockets" is the autobiography of Claire High Pockets Phillips:
"......to me Claire Phillips is four people:
First, she is a fellow soldier’s widow.
Second, she is “High-Pockets,” the outstanding and resourceful spy operating in Jap-held Manila for over 2 years.
Third, she is a guerrilla officer; determined and able leader and organizer of the Manila underground.
Last, she is “Comadre,” the intensely patriotic, and spiritually strong godmother of ragged, desperate men."
John Peyton Boone
