Prince of Thieves | The Town

Book, 2004 by Chuck Hogan

Four masked men--thieves, rivals, and friends from the tough streets of Charlestown--take on a Boston bank at gunpoint. Holding bank manager Claire Keesey hostage and cleaning out the vault was simple. But career criminal Doug MacRay didn't plan on one thing: falling in love with Claire.

With a tenacious FBI agent following his every move, Doug imagines a life away from his gritty, dangerous work. A life centered around Claire. But for Doug, that new life is just one final, perfect job away....Racing to an explosive climax, Chuck Hogan's brash tale of robbery in all its forms is an unforgettable odyssey of crime, love, ambition, and dreams.

The book won the 2005 Hammett Prize for excellence in crime writing.

Just saw the movie last night. I think it's a good one to see in the theater.
