Product Overview

A career criminal with OCD tendencies and a savant-like genius for bringing order to his crime scenes, Martin considers himself one of the best in the business. Of course, he only takes items that will go unnoticed by the homeowners. Even though he has never met these homewoners, hes spent hours in their houses, looking through their photo albums and reading their journals. Hes developed a friendship of sorts with them, and accordingly he decides to intervene though it means breaking many of his twitchy, neurotic rules. *Author: Dicks, Matthew *Publication Date: 2009/07/14 *Number of Pages: 292 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.25

"[Dick has] created a winning hero in Martin, a crook with a heart of gold."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Possessing OCD tendencies and a savant-like capacity for bringing order to his crime scenes, unlikely thief Martin steals unobtrusive objects from the same victims year after year and gets to know them by perusing their personal objects before opting to interfere more openly in their lives as an offbeat guardian angel. Original.
Annotation With this highly original and beautifully rendered debut, Matthew Dicks introduces Martin Railsback, a bartender whose passion lies in artistic burglaries. His goal is for his |"clients" as he calls them to never notice that anything's missing. He steals foodstuffs, toiletries and, only after extensive research and time, anything of real value. Despite his compulsions, Martin has his systems and methods down, and things seem to be going smoothly until one day a simple clumsy act sends Martin to the next level--he starts trying to actually help his clients. But will this raise the stakes so much that Martin will have to face consequences for his beguiling hobby?
