Twelve-year-old Ren doesn't know who his parents were. He doesn't know who left him at St. Anthony's orphanage, or how he lost his left hand when still an infant. He is resigned to life without a family to call his own and terrified of the future.

But then a young man named Benjamin Nab appears, claiming to be Ren's long-lost brother, and his convincing tale of how Ren lost his hand and his parents is enough to persuade the monks at the orphanage to release the boy. But is Benjamin really who he says he is? Journeying through the New England of whaling towns and meadowed farmlands, Ren is introduced by Ben to a vibrant world of hardscrabble adventure. Ultimately he is apprenticed to Ben's small band of resurrection men, those thieves of the night who steal bodies and sell them to hospitals for medical examination. If Ren stays, he becomes one of them. If he goes, he's lost once again. Most importantly, does Benjamin hold the key to the mystery of his - or their - parents, the defining question of Ren's life?

Richly imagined, gothically spooky, and showcasing the storytelling ability of a born novelist, Hannah Tinti's The Good Thief introduces one of the most appealing young heroes in contemporary fiction, and ratifies Hannah Tinti as one of our most exciting talents. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " One of the best books I've read in a long time! Orphans, graverobbers, nuns, priests, a giant, a dwarf, a mining accident, a mousetrap factory ... this easily could have been a great big mess, but instead it was charming, moving, and wonderful. "

    " Great storytelling and a classic adventure tale. As others have said, there are definite hints of Dickens and Robert Louis Stevenson. Though the ending is a bit predictable, watching the tale unfold is thoroughly enjoyable. "

    " Overall, a pretty good book. Seems odd this is an adult fiction. Given what Ren goes through, in my opinion, you need to read this with a "suspension of disbelief". It gives new meaning to "a boy on his own". "
