The Good Thief’s Guide to Amsterdam (Good Thief’s Guides Book 1)


The Good Thief's Guide to Amsterdam (Good Thief's Guides Book 1)

From the Number One Bestselling author of SAFE HOUSE comes this fast paced heist thriller.

Charlie Howard doesn't just write books about a career thief, he also happens to be one.

In Amsterdam working on his latest novel, Charlie is approached by a mysterious American who asks him to steal two apparently worthless monkey figurines from two separate addresses on the same night. At first he says no. Then he changes his mind. Only later, kidnapped and bound to a chair, the American very dead and a spell in police custody behind him, does Charlie begin to realise how costly a mistake he might have made.

The police think he killed the American. Others think he knows the whereabouts of the elusive third monkey. But for Charlie only three things matter: Can he clear his name? Can he get away with the haul of a lifetime? And can he solve the briefcase-shaped plot-hole in his latest novel?

The Good Thief's Guide to Amsterdam is the first book in Chris Ewan’s highly acclaimed Good Thief’s Guide series. All of the books in the series can be read and enjoyed as individual mysteries.
