Reviews - What do customers think about The French Art of Stealing?

Simply put The French Art of Stealing is a story about a combat photographer's seduction and survival while on an extended vacation in Paris, only there's nothing simple about it.

Author Mark Zero offers up a compelling mystery and wraps it a series of riveting chases. Starting in our hero's cozy local café Zero sends us on an amphibious tour of Paris that sets a new standard for dark, dank and desperate. Everyone is late and no one is honest to each other or themselves, except the café owner.

Zero's consistently colorful and flowing prose makes Stealing an easy and entertaining read. It is the perfect novel for an airline flight, treadmill or poolside.
A Rollicking Adventure  Apr 7, 2007
The French Art of Stealing is a funny crime caper with a great story, a real heart and winning characters. The pacing is taut, the twists and turns are surprising and the author's comic timing is dead on, and you root for the characters even when you know they're making dubious choices and getting in way over their heads. The city of Paris as it's portrayed here is the Paris you dream of, both ancient and modern, romantic and dangerous, and the way the story ends is an amazing feat of storytelling, bringing all the plots and sub-plots together in a cinematic spectacle. A great ride!
A Fun and Feisty Ride  Mar 29, 2007
Mark Zero's new novel, The French Art of Stealing, is one of those books that you don't want to put down. But if you are like me, a mother who doesn't have any time for myself except for the occasional evening, it's the sort of book that you can't wait to pick up again and lose yourself in. Set in Paris, the story centers around a group of friends who almost by accident get involved in the theft of a highly valued painting. Although wading within the dark and dank world of crime (much like swimming in the polluted river Seine, a metaphor that Zero skillfully allows to flow through the story) the friends comically fumble their way through to a well deserved ending. With just a few stops along the way for a bit of sex. I highly recommend it.
