My Review Of Steal It All Donovan Thief For Hire By Chuck Bowie

The third story in the series Donovan: Thief For Hire, begins with a brutal daylight murder of an English citizen in the Canadian embassy in London, England. The ambassador calls upon a combination of Scotland Yard and the RCMP . 
Then there’s the ace up his sleeve. Sean Donovan, a thief for hire who doubles as a security consultant. 
But Donovan isn’t nearby. He’s in Canada, learning about the business of winemaking and thinking about his new girl, and contemplating his recent exit from the business of theft. 
Even as he inches away from a life of crime, an art collector he owes a favor to, approaches him: is he willing to do the tiniest of thefts? Would Donovan track down a missing piece of art? Can the collector, Gaia, be trusted? Of course not. Can Donovan resist? Of course not. Is there easy money to be made? Oh, yes. 
Nothing is ever easy for him. 
Donovan may be betting his life on this gig.

My Review:  Strong, believable characters. Sean Donovan is a thief for hire who doubles as a security consultant. What better way to solve a crime than to hire a thief. Good gripping mystery that kept me turning the pages. Touch of romance left me wanting to read more.

  1. Thank you for this review, Kay. I'm flattered you took the time to read the novel and post such encouraging remarks. Donovan is fun to write, and I enjoyed 'meeting' the new characters who showed up!
