Reviews

Narrator Simon Vance shines in this audio version of the comic whodunit that spawned Ewan's popular the Good Thief's Guide series. By day, Charles Howard is a successful mystery writer. But at night he transforms into an equally successful burglar. While working on his latest novel, Howard is approached by a mysterious American who asks him to steal two monkey figurines. At first Howard refuses the job, but the lure of money and adventure changes his mind. He quickly obtains the simian statuettes. But when he goes to deliver the pilfered goods, he finds his employer beaten senseless. Suddenly, Howard is a suspect in the brutal attack and must use all his talents to clear his name and solve the mystery of the monkey figurines. Vance's characterizations are broad, but never fall into caricature, and his light, wry delivery perfectly captures the spirit of the prose. For listeners who like their mysteries more witty than bloody, this delightful audiobook-and its talented narrator-will more than satisfy. A Minotaur Books paperback. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
