From theNew York Times bestselling author Thomas Perry, "who can be depended upon to deliver high-voltage shocks" (Stephen King), comes a new thriller about an unlikely burglar--a young woman in her 20s--who realizes she must solve a string of murders, or else become the next victim Elle Stowell is a young woman with an unconventional profession: burglary. But Elle is no petty thief--with just the right combination of smarts, looks, and skills, she can easily stroll through ritzy Bel Air neighborhoods and pick out the perfect home for plucking the most valuable items. This is how Elle has always gotten by--she is good at it, and she thrives on the thrill. But after stumbling upon a grisly triple homicide while stealing from the home of a wealthy art dealer, Elle discovers that she is no longer the only one sneaking around. Somebody is searching for her. As Elle realizes that her knowledge of the high-profile murder has made her a target, she races to solve the case before becoming the next casualty, using her breaking-and-entering skills to uncover the truth about exactly who the victims were and why someone might have wanted them dead. With high-stakes action and shocking revelations,The Burglar will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they barrel towards the heart-racing conclusion.… (mere)

** spoiler alert ** This book is fast-paced but ultimately unsatisfying, mainly for one reason: it is full of implausibilities and head-scratching elements that bombard the reader with "What the heck?" moments. The biggest question/problem I had involved the whole premise for the bad guys chasing Elle: if the murderer was never visible on the video to begin with, why bother chasing her down? She's no threat to anybody. From there things just got sillier and sillier. How did anyone know she'd be in Las Vegas? How did the 3 bad guys know she hung out at the Pity? Elle's constant stupid mistakes bothered me too. Why did she drive by the scene of the crime? If the killer is not visible in the video, why risk her life and go back to return the camera? Why on EARTH did she go to her friend's funeral when she knew she was being hunted by the killers? Why did she trust herself with the Canadian cowboy? Why did Perry base the bad guys' actions on a non-illegal art scheme? ( )

There is just something so compelling about any Thomas Perry story. One word just takes you to the other til you get to the end. This one was particularly good. A female burglar finds a murder scene and works to unravel it. Towards the end, the story took some weird/not practical turns but by then I was sucked in way too far to care. ( )

Truthfully, I would have stopped reading this, but by the time I had made that decision, I was over halfway done. It’s a quick read. But a slow plot, with a main character that bored me. Lots of long descriptions of her breaking into place and slowly, very, very, slowly, going through the place. So slowly. And the 'scheme' that people were killed for? So very, very lame. Now that I finished the book, I'm sorry that I didn't stop when I should have. Boo. ( )

I was fortunate enough to have received a free copy from Netgalley of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The book is well written, (grammatically), easy to read, and has a lot of attention to detail. It was also fairly interesting, but not particularly so. The attention to detail was very tedious, whether about the burglary profession, or the items being stolen.

The main character was also very thin - just couldn't ever feel that I really knew her, or even cared to.

You know a book is not interesting when you are happy to finish it, instead of wishing there was more. I was happy to finish this one .... ( )
