Fantasy makes crime no less shabby — and thieves no less thick. Brick, ex-soldier turned tavern bouncer, lets loyalty and a woman involve him in a caper. Glum Arent, alcoholic poet, needs only greed and wine-added imagination. Magic, treachery, and bad decisions drive a simple heist from farce to tragedy. Can any of the thieves survive the mishaps and double-crosses?
With a nod to the novels of Elmore Leonard, the dean of American crime fiction, Thick As Thieves is gritty, street-level swords and sorcery from the author of Reunion and Under Strange Suns.
