Pressestimmen

PRINCE OF THIEVES is a terrific read. Chuck Hogan has woven a rich narrative of friendship, young love and mounting suspense. On each season's fiction list, if you are lucky, there are one or two books that live up to the advance hype. PRINCE OF THIEVES is such a book. Stephen King What a compelling read! Hogan's PRINCE OF THIEVES is smart, speedy and stylish - a literary PULP FICTION. Jeffery Deaver Chuck Hogan is a superb writer, and his PRINCE OF THIEVES is a grand novel peopled with believable characters in heart-wrenching scenes that throb with masterful suspense. More than a crime novel, this is simply great fiction that should not be missed. Ed McBain -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic psychological thriller! 23. August 2004
Von Wim Biemans - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A couple of years ago I picked up Hogan's debut-novel The Standoff and put is away after 150 pages because it was just plain boring and unbelievable. After that I tried again with The Blood Artists because of its interesting premise, but this time I also lost interest very quickly and decided that Hogan just wasn't it for me. But two weeks ago I found myself at Logan Airport in Boston when Prince of Thieves had just hit the stands. Because of its interesting storyline, the glowing reviews by King, Deaver and McBain and especially the fact that the story took place in Boston (which I had just visited) I bought the book on a whim and never regretted it!

Prince of Thieves is not your typical action thriller but a wonderful psychological profile of some very disturbed young men. It describes wonderfully how the protagonist tries to get out of a criminal life because of the love for a woman (that he met during his last criminal caper). The internal struggle he goes through is very believable and presents a wonderful perspective on human nature.

All in all, a very satisfying story that rises far above the numerous summer beach thrillers. I have no doubt that the story of Doug and his friends will stay with me for a long time (and that's a compliment coming from someone who reads app. 100 books a year). Wonderful book, Chuck, and I will definitely keep my eye open for your next one!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Book 16. März 2009
Von Terry Berry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I won't go into detail on what this book is about, since other reviewers have done so. An excellent read. If you like Dennis LaHane you're gonna love this one. One of those books I didn't want to finish it was so good.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing Book! 1. Juni 2006
Von Emily K. Guerra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an awesome book that has a inivative plot line of a professional bank robber whos attention is captured by a hostige during a "job". Unable to shake her from his thoughts, Doug begins to fall for her while trying to dodge a FBI Agent that is hot on his tail. The story explores the different characters stories allong with the struggles that they face both with others and within themselves. This book was a fast and highly enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! 6. Juli 2009
Von Patti A. Delvalle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I cannot say enough about this book...and the author, Chuck Hogan. The book grabs your attention from the very beginning and brings you in. Very well written. This is a book that will stay with you for a very long time, feeling like you have lost some friends when you are done.
I am glad to see he has finally come out with some more books! If you are even thinking about getting this book- grab it with both hands!
