Publisher's Summary

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

Would you listen to The Good Thief's Guide to Vegas again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again.... It's an easy listen and the narration is perfect.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What about Simon Vance???s performance did you like?

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.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The "real" guidebook to where you want to go.

Any additional comments?

When are the next books coming out? I can't wait. My husband and I enjoy this series so much.

I will read more of these

This was humorous with exciting moments. I enjoyed him getting out of his scrapes. I would read more by this author. I have also read his Amsterdam story and found it more deftly plotted, but the Vegas story is more fun.
