Reviews of The Good Thief’s Guide to Paris

The Denver Post

“Charlie is an agreeable character and the caper itself most ingenious, and fans of Lawrence Block’s Bernie Rhodenbarr series will find much to like in this adventure.”

 US Publishers Weekly

“Charlie Howard, a crime writer who’s also an international burglar, once again makes a funny, fast-talking narrator in Ewan’s delightful second mystery … That Charlie pens a memoir titled The Good Thief’s Guide to Amsterdam adds a nice postmodern touch to a classic caper.”

Starred Review, Library Journal

“Filled with mistaken identities, hot Picassos, mysterious hit men, and a tricky bit of art swapping at the Pompidou Center, this novel features wonderful descriptions of locale, engaging and wacky characters, and an entertaining plot that will leave readers eager for the next book. Highly recommended for all mystery collections.” 

Starred Review, Booklist

“Fast and funny, Ewan’s second offering in the Good Thief series is even better than the first … Charlie and Victoria’s discussions of mystery stories and plotting problems in Charlie’s latest novel are just one of the reasons this series stands out from the crowd.” 

 Mystery Scene Magazine

“The plotting and dialogue in this tale from British author Chris Ewan offers a treat for readers who like a dash of wit with their mystery.” 

The Leeds Guide

“This is definitely not a wayward sequel and can easily stand on its own two feet. The characters are highly developed and easy to relate to, the writing is witty and intelligent and the plot is, unique, extremely fast paced and somewhat addictive.”

News & Observer

“A frothy omelet flavored with yummy capers.”
