According to the US government, Hubie is a thief-but no act of Congress could stop him from doing what he loves. For decades, Hubie has worn the title of pot thief proudly. Outright burglary, though, is another story. But an offer of $25,000 to lift a rare pot from a local museum proves too tempting for Hubie to refuse. When he sees how tightly the relic is guarded, he changes his mind, but the pot goes missing anyway. Soon a federal agent suspects that Hubie is the culprit. After things take a turn for the serious, Hubie knows he must find the real thief quickly, or risk cracking something more fragile than any pot-his skull.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/199003873<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"Mystery fiction<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"Fiction<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/199003873#Series\/a_pot_thief_mystery<\/a>> ; # A pot thief mystery<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"The pot thief who studied Pythagoras : a pot thief mystery<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"889943723<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/889943723#PublicationEvent\/new_york_open_road_2009<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/199003873#Agent\/open_road<\/a>> ; # Open Road<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781480458789<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/889943723<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
