Always a Thief ( Quinn / Thief #2 ) by Kay Hooper

Always a Thief by Kay Hooper

In a deadly game of skill and deception...A master thief is just the first wild card…The priceless, rarely displayed Bannister collection is about to be exhibited—and the show’s director, Morgan West, can’t ignore her growing uneasiness. She’s certain she hasn’t seen the last of the infamous cat burglar Quinn. But she never expected him to turn up at her apartment one dark night in desperate need of her help—help she can’t refuse. The mysterious master thief is playing a dangerous game, and it’s a game that just might get him killed.

With Morgan’s help, Quinn sets a trap intended to catch someone far more elusive…and more deadly…than a thief. But an unseen threat shadows him in the fog-shrouded San Francisco night, an unknown adversary more cunning than any he has yet encountered. Now, just when the stakes are higher than even Quinn can imagine, no one can be trusted—and everything’s at risk.


Romantic Suspense


I was very eager to start on this sequel to Once A Thief, because in the first book, Morgan met the mysterious Quinn, but their relationship haven't develop further yet. The story revolves around the Bannister Collection yet again, I was wondering why it took so long for the collection to just get the hell out. Anyway, what I like most is the relationship between Morgan and Quinn. Although some the things that Morgan did make me roll my eyes a little. Like how she keep pestering Quinn and put herself in danger and HE in danger.

The ending is a little open ended. I thought Hooper actually plan for another sequel, but was disappointed to find out that she didn't. What a bummer. Quinn is such an interesting character.

Rating 4/5
