The Sacred Art of Stealing is a real find. It was recommended to me by a backgammon buddy. Everything about this book is wonderful. The pacing is at times a little off. But everything ties together with no waste. It is the magician’s crime novel. And I don’t like crime novels.

The language is sometimes difficult for an American, as it is written with local Scott slang. But it was well worth reading through that. Everything about this book didn’t feel American. I truly liked it. Yes, it is not one of my best books ever, but it was so good that I had to give it a five. I very rarely do that.
