Martin is not your typical burglar. He only takes things that you wouldn't notice are missing. His OCD tendencies allow him to keep meticulous inventories of the houses he routinely visits. He steals things like extra tubes of toothpaste, drain cleaner and towels. He is so thorough that he forms a bond with his "clients". At times, he may even get a little too attached...This is a wonderful first novel, and I look forward to many more from this author!
