Thiefs Odyssey

John L. Monk ✓ 6 REVIEW REVIEW Thiefs Odyssey î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB It was a serious game but it was still a game Money was just a useful way of keeping scoreBo Mosley is an uncommon thief At the age of sixteen living in a foster home he set a goal to become the world's greatest cat burg. Americans are notorious for their love affair with outlaws and in my foolish youth I was as smitten as anyone with Butch Casssidy and Sundance I outgrew that John L Monk did not Worse it isn t the fast shooting range riding Stetson hatted men of old he glorifies it s some petty modern day guy who fancies himself an uncommon rather than a common thief Still worse Monk gives readers explicit and lurid details on how to break into a house and crack a safeI was outraged and firmly resolved never to review this novel much less sing its praises but then I got to the ending All right I confess at about 40% in maybe sooner I knew I was hooked Denial is a powerful thingI ll write later but for now I m still really annoyed at John L Monk for writing so well that no matter what lame premise or shady character he comes up with he can get me to like it He s FUNNY His prose is fresh funny and original It s late and my Kindle battery is dead your fault John so I m not including any uotable uotes here Maybe tomorrow Maybe John as usual had to go writing about food and I just found some old chocolate chips in the pantry I m back It took almost a year SorryI m still really annoyed at John L Monk for writing so well that no matter what or shady character or awful premise he comes up with he can get me to like itDISCLAIMER 1 After reading his debut novel Kick I stalked the author via Facebook and Twitter and we continue to correspond via email I ve read and loved all the authors in his Awesome Indies blog project A few months ago I beta read an early version of this novel Thief s Odyssey which was written before Kick While there was much to love about it there were certain things that had me up in arms I could not endorse a protagonist who is a thief I have a deep rooted grudge against common thieves and uncommon ones and every kind of thief in betweenBut then there s the foster kids I am but a humble burglar Bo says one who happened to grow up in the United States at a time when even foster kids had computers and cellphones and other gadgets Bo is good with the gadgets but don t ask him where his parents are Foster kids know the code saying your parents were on vacation is a term everyone understood to mean they were in prison My own mother was one such case currently serving lifelong vacation in North Carolina for murdering my father Ouch And ooh what great proseWith a few well chosen words Monk nails the sorry situation of foster kids The whole novel could have been about them and I wouldn t have missed the roller coaster thrills of well all the plot spoilers I won t mention here I will say Bo has anger management issues which surface in ways that are comical and disastrous but also poignant provoking sympathy even in readers like me who do not glamorize or admire trespassing petty burglarsThe plight of foster kids what I love most about this novel doesn t even show up on the cover or in the synopsis Mrs Swanson a wealthy philanthropist goes above and beyond the call of duty protecting the kids from the foster care system that is supposed to save them even though it keeps sending them back to abusive parents who clean up long enough to get their kids back then go on neglecting or abusing them as usual The details are heart rending and sound so authentic I d swear John Monk was himself a foster kid Then again he knows so much about the art of burglary I d swear he wrote that stuff too straight from real life experience Authors of historical fiction pull the same trick and I have to remind myself that living authors were not contemporaries of Daniel BooneSome people have rich imaginations good research skills and the ability to spin a tall tale that sounds genuine Bear with me here but it reminds me of that joke about the Talking Dog for Sale sign A man knocks on the door asking if it s true the dog can really talk To prove it the owner leads him to the fenced in yard and introduces him to the dog who proceeds to carry on about all the heroic missions he s accomplished Good Lord the stranger exclaims Why would you sell a great dog like this The man says Because the dog s a damn liar He s never set foot outside of this pen Okay Yes John L Monk reminds me of that dog What a great story teller Like Harvey Click who can get me to read horror novels when I detest that genre Monk gets me to read about a guy who d creep me out in real life No matter what the intentions to have a stranger break into my home and dig through my personal effects is just creepy and for him to take jewelry or money from me is worse and to have him hiding in the shower if I got up in the night unaware of the intruder ARREST this trespasser Get him out of my house and off the streetsThere s almost no limit his lack of respect for the privacy and property of others Bo finds the personal diary of a celebrity and reads it And yeah I felt like a creep for reading her private journal he confesses But I ve always been good at tamping down feelings like that so I picked up another and kept reading Obviously there s much to this story than Bo the cat burglar breaking in to rich people s homes and stealing jewelry watches cash or whatever There s a lot of inner conflict character development revelations to be revealed and various heroic selfless deeds that show the flawed protagonist atoning for his sins You should find out why you are so angry a hotel employee tells Bo Until you do you re going to keep getting angry and you re going to keep hurting people From the title Odyssey I expected of Homeric epic with the archetypal stages of the hero s journey so I was pleasantly surprised to be spared the Sirens and Trojans There is an allegorical feel to the story and a hero s welcome in the end and no this is not a plot spoilerOddly I found myself liking the criminal known as Fruit and his big body guard Manny and I did not want to see them come to a bad end Bo s phone calls to Fruit are hilarious Authentic outrageous memorable dialogue is one of the hallmarks of Monk s novels Did I mention that his prose is fresh FUNNY and originalDISCLAIMER 2 I bought this book when it was on sale for 99 cents so that nobody could say I was beholden to the author for a review I ve 5 starred everything of John Monk s since I first downloaded Kick on a Kindle Free Today deal and was taken aback by how well written engaging and memorable the story is Few Indie Authors are as polished and professional as this Kick is better than most of the Big Six publicationsAt his blog John L Monk says he wrote Thief s Odyssey from a sense of frustration with Hollywood s depiction of thieves I wanted to write the kind of story that really fleshed out the myth of the Master Thief Someone who looks at what he does as almost an art does it for the challenge alone and isn t constantly promising his girlfriend This is the last job baby I swearthen we ll get that white picket fence I also wanted to show realistic depictions of safecracking lock picking the bypassing of alarms hacking identity theft and even smugglingOne of my big inspirations when writing Thief s Odyssey was Bill Mason s non fiction memoir Confessions of a Master Jewel Thief highly recommendedHighly NOT recommended says the woman who still hasn t forgiven whoever stole her cheap bicycle back in college nor the creepy intruder who left a cigarette butt in her apartment while she was away Not cool people Don t buy into the idea that it isBut do enjoy the story of Bo the foster kid a thief with a heart of gold You don t have to tell anyone you love this guy It can be our guilty little secret The Virginity of Famous Men useful way of keeping scoreBo Mosley is an Junie B Jones is a Party Animal Doll uncommon thief At the age
