The Good Thiefs Guide to Paris: A Mystery by Chris Ewan

The moment Id scanned the outside of the building, I turned to Bruno and said, First impressions, it looks straightforward. Looking back, I cant help but wonder what I was thinking. I mean, put that line at the opening of a crime novel and its practically a guarantee that everything is about to get complicated. Charlie Howardglobe-trotting mystery writer, professional thief, and poor decision makeris in Paris. Flush with the success of his latest book reading, not to mention a few too many glasses of wine, Charlie agrees to show a complete novice how to break into an apartment in the Marais. Fast-forward twenty-four hours and Charlies hired to steal an ordinary-looking oil paintingfrom the exact same address. Mere coincidence? Charlie figures theres no harm in finding outuntilnbsp;a dead bodynbsp;turns up in his living room and he finds himself evading the law while becoming caught up in a quite outrageous heist. And thats before Charlies literary agent, Victoria (whos naive enough to assume that he looks like hisnbsp;author photo), finally decides they should meet face-to-face. Nobody ever said a life of suspense was easy, but Charlie, the most disarmingly charming burglar since Cary Grant, soon finds things are getting way out of control.
