Despite telling myself that I wasn't going to buy any more books for a while, I happened across a tweet this morning about a book called The Good Thief's Guide to Venice, by Chris Ewan
A minor incidence of Googling later, and a surreptitious click on the 'send free sample' button on the Kindle page, and I'm reading his first book, The Good Thief's Guide to Amsterdam.
Dammit, it's good. Twenty minutes later I have the full version of his book on my Kindle.
Basic premise is that he's a crime writer who is also a burglar-for-hirehttp://www.thegoodthief.co.uk/
Go and check it out. Great fun, and given me some ideas for Monty. Pondering a first-person perspective...
