This little first novel is funny, interesting, and different—I enjoyed it a lot and understand that the author is coming out with another book featuring the same main character. Martin is a professional burglar, and obsessive-compulsive as well. He steals home supplies and food regularly—and occasionally something more valuable to sell on eBay—from a collection of victims (“clients”) he’s been stealing from for years—without them ever noticing. However, one day he inadvertently knocks a client’s toothbrush into the toilet and in trying to replace the toothbrush with an exact match, finds himself in danger of finally being caught—a life-changing event. I’m already looking forward to reading about the further adventures of Martin.
