The Burglar is my first book by Thomas Perry, and I chose it because when Verushka mentioned it on her blog, I thought it sounded like fun.
Elle is young, small, and fit. Being small is a good thing when you want to burgle a house and entry through a doggy door presents no problem. Elle is a professional; she knows the skills of the trade from the burglary itself to the right fence for the goods.
However, when Elle burgles the home of an art dealer, she discovers a triple homicide and a camera still running on the scene. What to do? She takes the camera, edits out her own presence, and returns it for the police to find.
Unfortunately, her attempt to aid the the police in finding out who committed the murders goes awry, and Elle finds herself a target.
Read in July; blog review scheduled for Dec. 26.
