This is, without a doubt, one of those books that will have you grabbing every available minute to read. Winner of the Edgar for Best Novel, The Lock Artist functions as both a coming-of-age tale and an exciting thriller. Michael, the lock artist, has not spoken since he was eight because of a trauma that will be revealed by the end, but he has also acquired a skill that makes him quite sought after in the wrong circles: he can pick any lock or combination safe. This vibrant and well-written tale is a blast!
