I love a good heist story and I discovered Steve Brewer via sheer fluke via facebook. Have already three of them: Lost Vegas, The Big Wink, and Calabama. All terrific and if you like Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake, you'll really like these. Plenty of action, suspense, and tremendous characters, plus, I have gotten more laughs than even EL and DW combined. He was nice enough to do a Q&A at my blog after I contacted him to pass on my thanks for the entertainement.
*this is in no way self-promo or glad handing a buddy. just passing on some good reads to those who like this genre.
