Charlie is a crime writer, part-time thief--and an amateur magician. He breaks into a conjurer's hotel room and makes a safe full of casino chips vanish into thin air. When the victim disappears, Charlie is suspected of being his accomplice at cheating the roulette tables.

McMillan Palgrave
Chris Ewan's The Good Thief's Guide to Vegas is the next caper in a series that’s being called “impressive… comic…fresh” (Publishers Weekly--starred review).
Charlie Howard isn’t only a part-time crime writer and part-time thief; he’s also a magician. For his next trick, he’ll relieve Josh Masters, the famous illusionist vying for the affections of Charlie’s friend Victoria, of $60,000 in casino chips stashed in his hotel safe.

Revenge would be sweet—if there weren’t a dead redhead floating in Masters’ bathtub and if Masters hadn’t just disappeared in a puff of smoke after cheating at roulette. Convinced that Charlie was in on the scam, the casino’s owners give him an impossible mission: either pull off an elaborate heist to reimburse the house for every dollar his “accomplice” made off with, or enjoy a one-way trip into the desert.

Fun read about a thief's adventure in Vegas, A bit pushing the logic at times but the author only has 3 books under his belt and there is not too many Dan Browns.
