    The Thief is a seasoned pickpocket. Anonymous in his tailored suit, he weaves in and out of Tokyo crowds, stealing wallets from strangers so smoothly that sometimes he doesn't even remember the snatch. Most people are just a blur to him; nameless faces from whom he chooses his victims. He has no family, no friends, no connections.... But he does have a past, which finally catches up with him when Ishikawa, his first partner, reappears in his life and offers him a job he can't refuse.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Thief the most enjoyable?

    The perspective mixed perfectly with the story. I liked the first person narrative and how he meshed with the little boy. A reluctant master with an eager apprentice.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really. But I found this book to be driven well by its characters, not necessarily by its plot.


    Have you listened to any of Charlie Thurston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time with Charlie Thurston, I liked him a lot.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I didn't think it would be going in, but the book just sort of flew by.
