Maybe you remember the great art theft from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990. Extremely valuable and irreplacable works of art were stolen and never recovered. In Among Thieves, David Hosp suggests what might have gone down - a very good supposition, full of intrigue, suspense, murder, mayhem and almost anything else that exists in the criminal mind.

However, our protagonist, Scott Finn, is a lawyer who only has brushes with the police when defending his clients in a courtroom. His client Devon Malley is the bad guy here. Caught in the process of robbing a high-end clothing store, he hires Finn to represent him in court. Believe it or not, the now defunct IRA makes a brief appearance as well as a bloodthirsty Irishman with a grudge the size of Mars to settle with the English.

We are treated as readers by being introduced to some pretty unusual characters - you can't help loving them, especially Devon's daughter Sally. A unique kid. Or maybe not so unique when considering the lives some kids are forced to live. Among Thieves is a good book.
