PRINCE OF THIEVES by Chuck Hogan - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Chuck Hogan.

The men wear masks. Their guns are drawn on the bank manager. She nervously recites the alarm code, and the tumblers within the huge vault fall. The timing and execution are brilliant. It could be the perfect heist. But as the huge sum of cash is stolen, so too is one man's heart -- and that man is the Prince of Thieves...

Charlestown, a blue-collar Boston neighborhood, produces more bank robbers and armored car thieves than any square mile in the world. In this gripping, intricately plotted thriller, Claire Keesey, the branch manager for a Boston bank and one of an influx of young professionals chipping away at the neighborhood's insularity, is taken hostage during a robbery. She is released, but Doug MacRay, the brains behind the tough, tight-knit crew of thieves, can't get her out of his mind. Tracking her down without his mask and gun, Doug introduces himself, and as soon as he and Claire meet, their mutual attraction is undeniable -- as are the risks of a relationship.

Meanwhile, Doug's crew pulls off another audacious, meticulously planned job. Frustrated by their ingenuity and brazen ambition, FBI Agent Adam Frawley begins to zero in on Doug and his pals -- and against his own better judgment, he, too, develops more than a professional interest in Claire.

Under pressure from Frawley's ever-closer investigation, Doug imagines a life for himself away from bank robberies and Charlestown. But before that can happen, the crew learns that there may be a way to rob Boston's venerable baseball stadium, Fenway Park. It's a magnificently dangerous and utterly irresistible opportunity -- yet for Doug, pursuing his former hostage may be the most dangerous act of all...

Chuck Hogan's brash tale of four men -- thieves, rivals, friends -- being hunted through the streets of Boston by a tenacious FBI agent, and the woman who may destroy them all, is a spectacular, stylish, heart-pounding thriller.

Take chances November 29, 2009
Reviewer: David R. from Sacramento, CA United States  
**I bought this book from the dollar store, simply because it was there. I had never heard of Chuck Hogan, and had no expectations whatsoever when I began reading it. Luckily, this book was one of the best I've ever read.  It is in no way formulaic, every ending that I imagined when I first got into the meat of the story was far from what Hogan actually imagined.  Written about a group of bank robbers who are at the same time protagonists and antagonists, this book is above all, a complete story. It leaves no unanswered questions, and no alternative ending could accomplish what Chuck Hogan did with this fantastic story.If you find yourself at the dollar store and happen upon a lonely book on a table, take a chance you may be glad you did.(Virginia adds:  Of course, VJ Books has SIGNED copies, too!)
