'The Lock Artist' by Steve Hamilton

I've really gotta tell you bout this. If you're in to reading, I'm on one of the best books I've read in a long time.

It's all about a young guy who has a gift of opening locks and safes. And even though it's a cliche to say it, I find it really difficult to put down, and I know it's gonna be such a bitch to finish it. The story takes you on a real ride, and the author definitely knows his onions.

But don't just take my word for it, read the reviews on Amazon. Bloody brilliant. I read from a Kindle, so I do tend to save a bit on books. I've got less than a hundred pages to go, and this book is picking up pace at a hell of a rate.

A bio... Ha! Well, apparently it's not him then. But I do recall an author that stopped in
awhile back to gather more accurate details for writing their book. Anyway. Maybe I'll
skim through the 'introduce yourself' section. Maybe I can find 'em there. Just curious.

.... a bio :fullmoon:
