In this quirky debut novel from author Matthew Dicks, career criminal Martin uses his OCD to pilfer items from his victims' houses without being discovered. It helps that he only takes things the homeowner would never notice are missing'like a roll of toilet paper or a bottle of maple syrup. Martin has spent so much time snooping through homes he feels like he knows the owners, but when he starts meddling in their personal lives, his precise world turns to chaos.

This book was so good. I can't even explain it to you in any other way except to think of it like a pretzel. Keep the details straight and you should be ok. Read it.

Slow and boring at first, the main character grows on you somewhat, but the book should have been a whole lot better with this interesting subject matter.
