Los Angeles’s most talented burglar, Junior Bender, is in the middle of stealing one of the world’s rarest stamps from a professional killer when his luck suddenly turns sour. It takes an unexpected assist to get him out alive, but his escape sets off a chain reaction of blackmail, strong-arming, and escalating crime. By the time Junior is forced to commit his third burglary of the week — in the impregnable fortress that’s home to the ruthless studio mogul called King Maybe — he’s beginning to wish he’d just let the killer take a crack at him.

“A Seattle Times Best Mystery of 2016.”
“A Booklist Best Mystery of 2016.”
“The curlicuing plot is itself the source of much of the appeal here, which is not to shortchange either the ever-quirky cast of bent but delightful characters or Hallinan’s dazzling style ... Are there too many lovable crooks in contemporary crime fiction? Well, maybe, but one thing’s for sure: they’re all chasing Junior. ”
–Booklist Starred Review
“Bender’s quick wit and smart mouth make him a boon companion on this oddball adventure. ”
