Thief in Law by MICHAEL DIRUBIO
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As a professional thief, Michael Davidson does a great job. He lives a luxurious life, while looking after his elderly next door neighbor. Robbery is Michael's life, and even though Michael is highly intelligent, he prefers to use his smarts to outwit and connive his way through life. The author Dirubio writes with great clarity and glittering descriptions of not only Michael's abode, but the surrounding environs. Overall, a good story that details what it is like to be a good for nothing thief, the "thief in law", excels at what he does, Michael is portrayed in an entirely human way, with love interests that complicate things and Russians who are out to get him. With complicated heists to work their way through, Michael and his gang spend a lot of time in the high end crime planning stages, making sure everything goes just right. Overall, an entertaining diversion that has the reader rooting for Michael the protagonist, even though he is not an admirable character. Highly recommend.
