This book was an amazing find for me. This book came into my hands when a customer came looking for it at my store, and well, the rest is history. The story is like a tale of Robin Hood and his merry men, but with more focus on stealing and not so much giving back to anyone. They are a cheery bunch of crazy men making their way in a place of gangs, thieves, and pirates. You follow the story of Locke Lamora, the most charismatic and sneaky of the bunch. He leads his men into the biggest heist of all, the treasure of a lord. They have planned and perfected how they would trick this man into giving away his fortune, but just when it seems they are about to be set for life, a stranger named the Gray King appears and he’s out killing thieves and gangs of the city, and now Locke is in for more trouble than he planned.— Jess
Debut author Lynch pens a witty and fast-paced narrative that is nearly as much of a con as the wily schemes of its hero.
