"An impressive, very funny debut novel . . . featuring Charlie Howard, who is the very model of a modern master criminal."The Raleigh News & Observer Charlie Howard travels the globe writing suspense novels for a living. To supplement his incomeand keep his hand inCharlie has a small side business: stealing for a very discreet clientele on commission.When a mysterious American offers Charlie 20,000 euros to steal two small monkey figurines to match the one he already has, Charlie is suspicious; the job seems too good to be true, and of course, it is: He soon finds the American beaten nearly to death, while the third figurine has disappeared.Back in London, his literary agent, Victoria (who is naive enough to believe he actually looks like his jacket photo), tries to talk him through the plot problems in both his latest manuscript and in his real lifebut Charlie soon finds himself caught up in a caper reminiscent of a Cary Grant movie, involving safe-deposit boxes, menacing characters, and a beautiful damsel in distress.
