It just gets better and better,
This review is from: The Sacred Art Of Stealing (Paperback)
I have now read quite a number of Chris Brookmyres books, and each one seems better than the one before. The Sacred Art of Stealing is no exception.
His description of the characters are brilliant. Although set in Glasgow I think you could substitute any large industrial city and it would be apt, simply change the accent.
The actual act of Stealing was inspired with a cleverly executed plot, but it was the interaction between the characters that I found compelling, funny and sad, often all at the same time, I mostly found myself rooting for the "good baddies" willing them to run a little faster. The character of detective police woman Angelique De Xavia is very believable and I hope she continues to feature in more of his stories.
The Sacred Art of Stealing is an excellent read and highly recommended.
