review 1: Charlie Howard, the mystery writer and thief, visits Vegas in the third book in Chris Ewan's Guide Thief Guide series. With his literary agent Victoria, Charlie visits the Fifty-Fifty casino, where he picks the pocket of magician Josh Masters, the hotel's headline act. And when Charlie later breaks into Masters' hotel room, he discovers a body in the bathtub, and that the magician's assistant is missing. Immediately putting two and two together, Charlie figures the magician is involved in something deadly, but the casino's owners think that Charlie is plotting together with Master's to rob the casino. Readers who like caper novels, like Donald Westlake or Lawrence Block's Bernie Rhodenbarr series, will enjoy getting to know Charlie Howard.

... more first one in the series and would continue to read these but I don't think this is as good. But I often struggle to read books about places I've not been to so this might play a part in it. I'm a Jonathan Creek fan and these definitely appeal to me and I like the way they get you on the side of a bad guy. Not sure how much I like the side kick element now, so hope she gets relegated back to phone support in the next one! less
