A professional burgler get caught in an apartment, and then finds out that there is a fresh corpse in the next room. So of course they think he murdered this person! Now he has to find out who did it while eluding the police.
I loved this book. It makes me want to read all of this series. Be sure and read the little two page explanation of how the author came to write this book at the end also. The main character is not a hero but by any means but he is smart and can figure out a mystery with the best of them.
