A dazzling and funny romantic comedy from Adam Davies, the author of The Frog King and Goodbye Lemon.

Otto Starks is a "pulse"—a highly specialized security guard who has hyperdeveloped senses and a nervous habit of popping tabs of cyanide. Otto was once a rising star but then he was rolled three times by the notorious Rat Burglar. Now, demoted and dangerously in debt to a loan shark, all he has left is Charlie Izzo, the woman he loves. Unfortunately, she is also the Rat Burglar's zealous advocate. That's bad enough. But then Otto gets robbed yet again and the cops pronounce him the prime suspect. When Charlie disappears and Otto becomes a fugitive, he realizes that the Rat Burglar has stolen much more from him than art. And to get it back he must break the law he has devoted his life to upholding. Mine All Mine is a nail-biting thriller about deception, betrayal, and ownership—in art and in love.

Praise For Mine All Mine

"If Raymond Chandler had a deranged sense of humor, if Nick Hornby dabbled in thrillers, if Philip K. Dick were not dead—they might have collaborated on a book as strange and strangely wonderful as Mine All Mine. A rollicking, rocking good read."—David Benioff, author of The 25th Hour and City of Thieves

"Biting and bitter, but also charming. A svelte page-turner...laugh-out-loud funny."—Publishers Weekly
