The good thief’s guide to Vegas is the third book in Chris Ewan’s Good thief’s series featuring Charlie the mystery writer thief. Funnily enough this book is set in Vegas and revolves around Charlie and Victoria’s misfortune of getting mixed up in an illusionist deception of the casino which employs him. Victoria is Charlie’s agent for his lawful career and we learn a lot more about her and her past in this book. Yet again Chris keeps us guessing through the novel and having read the two previous book I’m starting to get a feeling for his writing style but I still couldn’t work out the ending.
This book was a first for me as it’s the first e-book I’ve read and it was a far nicer experience than I expected, the iPad I read it on isn’t the easiest thing to put in your pocket but it is easier to sit in bed and read, you don’t have to hold the book open at the right page just prop it up against the headboard. I’m impressed and will buy more, might even consider buying a kindle just for the ease of carrying one. But that’s in the future.
No idea what to read now though…
