Ken Lizzi’s debut novel Reunion is hard to top, and Under Strange Suns is high on my favorites list, but Thick as Thieves may be he his best novel yet. It’s one of those rare stories I can read twice, even three times, and enjoy the witty repartee and intelligent inner monologues.

Intelligence. The more I read, the more I appreciate it when I see it. Sadly, the really smart, world-wise, experienced writer is a rare commodity these days. Hemingway and London actually lived the kind of adventures

Although Lizzi is really telling more of an Elmore Leonard-style crime story than a straight heist. Lizzi gives us a quick, pulpy read (234 pages) that comes with surprisingly depth, economically doled out in small bits. It is a fun story, if not one that blew me away.

I read almost as much crime fiction as
