Epic characters, believable and authentic even while being extraordinary!

Magic, treachery, and bad decisions drive a simple heist from farce to tragedy...

Ken Lizzis "Thick as Thieves" may be his best novel yet. Its one of those rare stories I can read twice, even three times, and enjoy the witty repartee and intelligent inner monologues.

The world-building in a Ken Lizzi novel is always splendid. We dont know for sure were on planet

Thick as Thieves is a pulpy adventure SF tale about a burly soldier-turned-tavern bouncer, Brick, who makes the mistake of agreeing to a simple plan and gets involved over his head in a heist. 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.
