Charlie Howard—globe-trotting mystery writer, professional thief, and poor decision maker—is in Paris. Flush with the success of his latest book reading, Charlie agrees to show a complete novice how to break into an apartment in the Marais. Fast-forward twenty-four hours and Charlie’s hired to steal an ordinary-looking oil painting—from the exact same address. Mere coincidence? Charlie figures there’s no harm in finding out—until a dead body turns up in his living room and he finds himself evading the law while becoming caught up in a quite outrageous heist. And that’s before Charlie’s literary agent, Victoria, finally decides that they should meet face to face. Nobody ever said a life of suspense was ever easy, but Charlie, the most disarmingly charming burglar since Cary Grant in It Takes a Thief, soon finds things are getting way out of control.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Kathy H | 1/17/2014

    " Generally a fun read, well-written. The author keeps too many crucial bits hidden from the reader for a really good who-dunit murder mystery. "

    " I haven't read a mystery in quite a while. This one was slow to ensnare me, but it eventually did. I liked the wry, subtle British humor injected into the story, which really required a willing suspension of disbelief. A fun read in the end. "
