The sacred art of stealing by Christopher Brookmyre( Sound Recording )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
The press tends to talk about bank robberies as daring, ingenious or audacious, never as "Dadaist", even the ones who know what "Dadaist" means. But how else does one explain choreographed dancing gunmen in Buchanan Street, or the surreal methods they use to stay one step ahead of the cops? Angelique do Xavia is no art critic, but she is a connoisseur of crooks, and she's sure that this heist isn't the work of the usual sawn-offs-and-black-tights criminal. It's her job to hunt this unique species of thief to extinction - though the fact that it's not just his modus operandi that's cute might prove a distraction. This thief, however, has greater concerns than his own safety, and a secret agenda more valuable than anything he might steal. He can afford to play cat and mouse with a female cop; it might even be necessary
