PRINCE OF THIEVES by Chuck Hogan
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 1, 2004

"Hogan (The Blood Artists, 1998, etc.) writes with cool precision and a great eye for detail, progressively building suspense. Still, too much Doug and Claire and too little of the other thieves unbalances the story and gives it a disappointingly soft center."
The romance between a bank robber and one of his former hostages threatens both the unity and the safety of his criminal crew. Read full book review >
