The Penny Thief

... and if someone was robbing a bank cent by cent without anyone realizing it ...

PARIS, Montmartre and La Défense, the ultra-modern business district with their office skyscrapers.
Henri Pichon is a quietly sharp programmer whose daily routine is altered by a fortuitous accident from which will change the fate of everyone around him.
A different crime/detective novel: a story of love, hate, greed, murder ... and a refreshing touch of black humor.
How far are you willing to go for the money? ...

my thoughts
What a fantastic book! I couldn't put it down. Starts with a bang and the action doesn't stop. 
The writing is spectacular, the story just flows. The characters are full and entertaining. You will either love or hate them, my favorite...Henri and Tash. 

It has been many years since I visited Paris, however, the descriptions were so well done that I could actually 'see' the places being described. 

I loved this book. It has everything a reader could want. Adventure, intrigue, romance and fun.

The biggest thing on 15-year-old Tommy's mind is convincing Mom to let him go to the drive-in, but when an accident claims his mother's life and puts him in the hospital, the arrival of his estranged, alien father brings more changes than he had bargained for. It doesn't take his father long to figure out that Tommy knows nothing about who or what he is. Without any explanation, Tommy finds himself onboard his father's spaceship where he is forced to trust a man he does not know in a world he knows even less about.
Adapting to his new life seems overwhelming, and his father's solution may prove to be Tommy's finest challenge yet...Jayden. A few months younger than Tommy, high strung and always in a mood, the doctor's daughter definitely didn't like being 'told' to help Tommy fit in. Jayden is not the most welcoming or patient of tutors, let alone a friend. As fate would have it, Tommy quickly learns that none of these things compare to the peril that comes from being born with amethyst eyes.
