Good Thief's Guide to Paris, The: Good Thief Mysteries, Book 2

Charlie Howard - mystery writer and professional thief - is flush with the success of his Paris book reading when he agrees to show a novice the basics of his other trade by breaking into the man's own apartment. Trouble ensues when it turns out the apartment belongs to someone else. The next day, Charlie's fence hires him to steal an ordinary-looking oil painting - from the same address. Mere coincidence?

Publisher's Summary

Charlie Howard - mystery writer and professional thief - is flush with the success of his Paris book reading when he agrees to show a novice the basics of his other trade by breaking into the man's own apartment. Trouble ensues when it turns out the apartment belongs to someone else. The next day, Charlie's fence hires him to steal an ordinary-looking oil painting - from the same address. Mere coincidence?

Charlie reckons there's no harm in finding out - until a dead body turns up in his living room. Hiding in a Montmartre hotel, Charlie tries to work out how to save his skin, while also placating his agent, Victoria, who has arrived unannounced in the mistaken belief that Charlie actually looks like the author photo he provided.

    "The Thief of Time"
    If you could sum up Good Thief's Guide to Paris, The in three words, what would they be?

    I kept returning


    What did you like best about this story?

    The hero's flaws and bad choices just make me want to find out more. He's a bad liar, a bad womaniser, a bad drunk and bad at accents, but a good thief.


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I felt that the narrator delivered the humour and the depth of the performance better than my own inner voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Charlie found the corpse in his flat. Set up (again). Doh!


    Any additional comments?

    The author has the hero covering lots of the options that this reader could think of (and many I hadn't thought of). Nice to feel stretched by this 'read'. Despite having other books on the go, this quickly became my main listen.
