I have read everthing she's wrote, going back 20 years or so. I liked the original series. I wasn't impressed with the first one(Once a thief) and went ahead and read the second(Always a thief) and it wasn't worth the effort. It was choppy and didn't flow. The rewrite really didn't add anything except the additional murder and thief. I took that as a set-up for a new book?

What a waste of $5.95 for a paperback! This is probably that worst tripe I have ever read. The plot is laughable, with both men and women constantly scrambling up and down fire escapes and across the tops of fog-shrouded buildings like so many Spider-man wannabes. The male protagonist (a cat burglar) seems unusually large for his chosen line of work. 'Every time I get close to you, I can't believe how big you are,' the supposedly bright but incredibly dumb-acting girlfriend shyly coos. The kicker is the cat-burglar's mother, who apparently mothered just about all of the rest of the cast of characters, too. If there is a sequel (God forbid), she ought to get the starring role!
