Inspector Gilles Maintenon has finally run up against an original mind-someone who's very good at wasting his time. A young bank employee is found dead in a vault that shows every sign of having been robbed. The premier Paris branch of Crédit Lyonnais holds ten or twenty million francs on a busy day. Then there's the safety-deposit boxes. A proper investigation takes time. The police are nothing if not predictable in their procedures. But that other mind has already gone down that road. They've had plenty of time to think it through. Their killer, using simple human psychology, has come up with a brilliant plan. Gilles would dearly love to meet the mind that conceived of that plan. He intends to do just that.
Mystery fans are sure to enjoy How to Rob a Bank, the sixth volume in Louis Shalako's Inspector Gilles Maintenon Mystery Series.

Not the best but not the worst book in this series. The beginning of the book grabbed your interst immeditately but then it had so many twists/turns and characters that the story got confusing at mid-point. Lots of areas seemed very repetitive as if I kept reading the same thing over and over. it became a bit of a struggle to continue. I felt the ending wrapped things up nicely. Had several editing errors throughout.
