Retiring from his life of crime to write novels in Venice, gentleman thief Charlie is blackmailed into committing a dastardly deed in order to reclaim a prized rare book that has been stolen by a femme-fatale burglar.

McMillan Palgrave
Charlie, a gentleman thief to rival Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief, gallivants around Venice in The Good Thief's Guide to Venice--the next caper in Chris Ewan's sparkling series.
After a particularly bad streak of luck in Vegas, Charlie has retreated to Venice, having vowed to give up a life of crime to write crime fiction full-time. But inspiration has yet to strike. And to make matters worse, Charlie’s agent Victoria shows up at his door just as his prized first edition of The Maltese Falcon flies out the window with a femme-fatale burglar. Blackmailed into committing a dastardly crime in order to get his book back, Charlie is catapulted into yet another adventure, this one even more explosive than the last.

This book is a fun, breezy read. While the characters aren't outrageously deep, they're really likable. The plot has a quick pace that's sure to keep readers interested. Charlie is a former thief who has turned towards the path of the straight and narrow to appease his editor (and love interest) Victoria, as he attempts to become a successful crime-novelist. At the beginning of each new novel, he relocates to another famous city. This is the fourth installment in a series which began with Amsterdam, Paris, and Las Vegas. Chris Ewan includes a great local flavor in his work which will be of interest to anyone who has visited these cities before.
