The Fame Thief

The Fame Thief

I am excited that Unshelved's sponsor this week is Soho Press, publishers of The Fame Thief by Timothy Hallinan, one of my favorite books of the year. Ever since I read Crashed (my comic strip review is here) I have nursed a huge crush on thief/detective Junior Bender, and The Fame Thief just confirms that he is a modern day Fletch, which coming from me is high praise indeed. Drop every other mystery series and start reading these. You won't regret it, I guarantee.
