The Good Thief's Guide to Berlin

(2013)
(The fifth book in the Charlie Howard series)
A novel by

 
 
From the Number One bestselling author of SAFE HOUSE

You can't keep a good thief down. Charlie Howard - mystery writer and professional burglar-for-hire - is back in the saddle, robbing the people of Berlin blind. But his larcenous binge is about to be interrupted by a call to duty - on behalf of Her Majesty's Government.

A sensitive item has been stolen from inside the British embassy in Berlin. Four employees are suspected of the theft and Charlie is hired to discreetly break into each of their homes, identify the guilty culprit and steal the item back. There's just one problem: the item is so sensitive that Charlie can't be told what it is. But how do you find something when you don't know what you're searching for? And what do you do if you witness a murder during your first break in?

In this fast-paced and charming mystery, Charlie must evade a hornet's nest of foreign spies to retrieve the mystery item, catch a killer, and finally confront how he really feels about his best friend and confidante, Victoria.

The Good Thief's Guide to Berlin is the 5th 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.

Praise for The Good Thief's Guide to Berlin

"Outstanding ... Ewan perfectly blends tension and humor in a neatly constructed plot." Starred Review, US Publishers Weekly

"Ewan keeps the action and the humor cantering along at a comfortably swift pace, but this time there's a startling finale that will have fans craving more. For everyone who misses Lawrence Block's equally "good" and amusing thief Bernie Rhodenbarr, Charlie is the ideal stand-in." Booklist

"A highly entertaining romp ... The blend of thriller and humour is irresistible!" Tulsa Book Review
