Book Review: Uncommon Thief by William Manchee

A college student working part time as a bank messinger is framed for a huge bank robbery. When a Bank employee is found dead in the vault, Fred Fuller finds himself on trial for murder and must depend on his girlfriend and two high school buddies to prove him innocent.

I found Uncommon Thief to be a fairly good book.  The protagonist, Fred Fuller, was definitely a three dimensional character with strengths and weaknesses.  He faces some tough choices and makes mistakes, to which everyone can relate. 

There were a few things I didn't like about the book.  Fred's girlfriend, Maria, seems too good to be true.  The flashbacks were too long and not completely necessary to further the storyline.  Still, it's an entertaining story.

*Disclaimer:  I won this book from a GoodReads giveaway.  I was not required to write a positive review.

I give this book 3 Bookworms.
