‘Thief’ by Owen Mullen

My Review (5 stars out of 5)

When Charley Glass tracked down her brother and sister in London, there were things she didn’t tell them – like the property she stole from New Orleans crime gang the Giordanos, or the fact that the Giordanos are still after her and want her dead. While Luke hobnobs with the aristocracy and tackles bent politicians, he must also keep Nina from imploding, as well as holding his enemies at arm’s length. When the Giordanos make their move, the Glass family face a gang war that could end with them losing everything…

This is book 4 in the Glass Family thriller series and like the others, it’s crammed with thrills and spills. Owen Mullen begins this volume in New Orleans as he brings the story up to date with Charley’s adventures before she joined her family in London. He also throws a few curve balls at Nina, giving her the mother of all drug habits, putting her in a position that presents a former drug dealer with an interesting opening and a means of getting into the good books with a rival crime boss. The development of the characters is well handled, particularly those of George, Felix and Nina, while others on the periphery give the story an extra dose of excitement. With everything to play for, the action hurtles towards a thrilling climax as the brown stuff hits the wind machine.

I wouldn’t have thought it possible to top his previous book, but Owen Mullen has done it again. ‘Thief’ is a thumping good read with a spicy layer of the famous Mullen wit to season the pot.
