"From the first page Charlie Howard stole my attention and even after finishing the book I still haven’t got it all back."
Meet Charlie Howard, he's a struggling crime writer and a reformed burglar who has gone straight to concentrate on his writing. He has holed himself up in a crumbling Venetian palazzo to work on his next novel without distraction; however he is still itching to go out on a “job”.
To add insult to injury he catches a beautiful cat-burglar making off with his prized possession and leaving a mysterious calling card in its place. Will kicking the habit of a lifetime prove too much for Charlie or will he achieve his aim?
Prowling among Venice's maze of waterways Charlie attempts to re-capture his lost talisman from the cat burglar, find him embroiled in a far greater plot than he could ever have imagined.
