Charlie Howard isn’t only a part-time crime writer and part-time thief; he’s also a magician. For his next trick, he’ll relieve Josh Masters, the famous illusionist vying for the affections of Charlie’s friend Victoria, of $60,000 in casino chips stashed in his hotel safe. Revenge would be sweet - if there weren’t a dead redhead floating in Masters’ bathtub and if Masters hadn’t just disappeared in a puff of smoke after cheating at roulette. Convinced that Charlie was in on the scam, the casino’s owners give him an impossible mission: either pull off an elaborate heist to reimburse the house for every dollar his “accomplice” made off with, or enjoy a one-way trip into the desert.

Good Thief and good book
I would definitely listen to this book again.... It's an easy listen and the narration is perfect.
I like the main character's perseverance. He just never gives up on his writing or his "side" occupation. His personality moves the story forward. Each city is a supporting character to Charlie.
Simon Vance has a great voice for this character.... not too stuffy, not too sophisticated. He sounds like a witty friend. His voice for female characters is also very good. The female voices do not sound helpless but rather they compliment the main character well.
The "real" guidebook to where you want to go.
When are the next books coming out? I can't wait. My husband and I enjoy this series so much.
