Summary
"Charlie Howard - globe-trotting mystery writer, professional thief, and poor decision maker - is in Paris. Flush with the success of his latest book reading, not to mention a few too many glasses of wine, Charlie agrees to show a complete novice how to break into an apartment in the Marais. Fast-forward twenty-four hours and Charlie is hired to steal an ordinary looking oil painting - from the exact same address." "Mere coincidence? Charlie figures there's no harm in finding out - until a dead body turns up in his living room and he finds himself evading the law while getting caught up in a quite outrageous heist. And that's before Charlie's literary agent, Victoria (who is naive enough to assume that he looks like his author photo), decides they should finally meet face-to-face." "Nobody ever said a life of suspense was easy, but Charlie, the most disarmingly charming burglar since Cary Grant, soon finds things are getting way out of control."--BOOK JACKET
