Description

Charlie Howard - struggling crime-writer by day, talented thief by night - has gone straight. But holing himself up in a crumbling palazzo in Venice to concentrate on his next novel hasn't got rid of the itch in his fingers. And to make matters worse, a striking Italian beauty has just broken into his apartment and made off with his most prized possession, leaving a puzzling calling card in its place.

Sneaking out into Venice's maze of murky canals, Charlie's attempts to tame a cat-burglar embroil him in a plot that is far bigger and more explosive than he could ever have imagined ... it looks as though kicking the habit of a lifetime will be much more of a challenge than Charlie thought.

Review quote

'Ewan gives Charlie lines Hammett would have approved of and creates a witty action caper that can only be described in best Italian terms as a proper bunga-bunga.' -- The Times 'A fun, wise-cracking romp. And the descriptions of Venice ... are among the best I've read.' -- The Herald 'Ancient buildings explode, gambling cartels disintegrate, Charlie topples into a canal and secondhand bookdealers meet gruesome ends in this engaging and well-paced crime caper.' -- The Guardian
