Fresh off the exposé of an organized crime syndicate, an award-winning investigative reporter lives in fear for his life. Relocating to Detroit under a new government issued identity, Nathan Davies finds himself dealing with the underbelly of American society once again.
America's most notorious thief, Zachary Landon, thrives upon the wealthy residents of the Motor City. Only targeting those who oppress the weak, Landon has become known as a modern day Robin of the Hood.
Davies quickly becomes enamored with the legend of Landon and soon his desire to learn more pushes aside the fear that has kept him alive. After a chance meeting, a bond begins to form and Nathan finds that Zachary Landon truly deserves to be glorified, not persecuted.
As truths are told, drawing Nathan in even further, he learns that when it comes to the gentleman thief, nothing is left to chance.

Elegant surprise

What did you like most about One Step Ahead?

Written as a series of shortish stories held together by a theme, this delightful book is perfect to pick up when reading time is limited Set in a period of earlier elegance and politeness, the 'Gentleman Thief' is that and more - in particular, suave and very clever. Think a combination of Raffles and Sherlock Holmes. The stories reflect this, being most unusual crimes solved (or initiated) by the man of the title.
The narration is excellent. Rich McVicar's voice is easy to listen to, beautifully modulated and perfectly fitting the subject matter.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am grateful to the publisher, author or narrator who sent me a complementary copy, via Audiobook Boom, in exchange for an honest review.

I received this audio book for free from the author, as a fan of his previous works, in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed hearing this compendium of short stories. Landon is a "gentleman thief". If you're a fan of that tv show, Leverage, you'll understand the appeal. He only hits targets that deserve it, and usually only gets a fraction of a "normal" fee. He gets screwed over more often than not, and has a powerful ally/foe in his "childhood friend" the police inspector. This is well written, well narrated, and a perfect blend of ironic sarcasm and mind-blowing intuition. I can't wait for the next installment!
