Publisher Description

Thirteen stories of outrageous heists starring one smooth thief from the Edgar Award–winning author of The Shattered Raven.
 The dictator of the island of Jabali wants a baseball team, and he doesn’t care how he gets it. He has assembled nine of the finest players on the island, and is about to hire Nick Velvet to steal him some competition. Ordinary thieves might not be up to pinching a whole ball club, but Velvet specializes in lifting seemingly worthless items, and in this year’s National League, there is nothing more worthless than the hapless Beavers. He steals them easily—but will the island’s ruler be satisfied with a last-place team?
In these charming stories starring one of Edward D. Hoch’s most popular characters, everything is up for grabs. Velvet steals sea serpents, garbage, cats, and toy mice—all with his trademark low-key style. In Nick Velvet’s underworld, there is nothing he won’t steal, so long as it’s priceless, worthless, or just plain crazy.

Edward Hoch

One of my very favorite authors whom I found out about from reading old Ellery Queen magazines. This was the first iBook that I have read. You will be quite satisfied with reading about Nick Velvets adventures. Fast paced stories and perfect to read when you have little bits of time to yourself.
