If you've read the first you must complete the story with "Always a Thief", otherwise you'll have missed out. These two books together would make a great movie.

...and that isn't saying a thing. Once A Thief wasn't anything to reflect on. Always A Thief has some good points though once again Kay disappointed me in the ending. She has the habit of writing fabulous stories up UNTIL the ending. Her endings always seem like cop outs to me. Like she's afraid to go as deep as her mind will allow. We hear all this talk about Nightshade and it turns out to be someone right under our nose but it makes no sense.
I had a big problem with Kay jerking my chain several different times. She hinted that Quinn may have been crooked and fooling Morgan. She hinted that Nightshade was a woman. She hinted that a major character may meet their demise before the ending. None of this happened and it just turned her supposed master plot into pure rubberish. What makes this better than Once A Thief is the scenes between Morgan and Quinn. Kay lets them get to know each other and finally make love. Something I was waiting for in Once A Thief. Instead she focused on Storm and Wolff two characters I hope she never brings back in anything because I hate them both. I've read tons of Kay's books and she always provides cop out endings. I don't know if she is afraid to do something major or what. Anyway, I have mixed feelings with this but it is better than Once A Thief. If you actually enjoyed that book you should love this one. Always A Thief wasn't boring like Once A Thief and it focused on the main characters. The love scenes between Morgan and Quinn were tense and exciting yet placed in the wrong parts. I pray the third one ( and it IS coming ) is better. If not this entire series should bite the dust.

I am an avid fan of Kay Hooper and the new Quinn books are wonderfully written. It has a charming and witty story line with a character you can't help but fall in love with. She's definitely in a class with Nora Roberts, JAK, etc...
I hope the Quinn stories don't end or end up as movies...

As I said before I am a huge fan of Lay Hooper! I love all of her books. I think Always a Thief is anything but boring! Try it and judge for yourself! It is a terrific story!

This story about a burglar named Quinn and his romantic interest named Morgan fishtails at the end. During the whole intrigue, the reader is made to believe that Nightshade may turn out to be a woman
Nightshade turns out to not be a woman, but another mysterious woman turns up at the end without ever having been introduced, and Quinn ends up pursuing her with the result that the reader remains clueless as to what her role was in the story to begin with. Lousy ending. Not worth the money.

I gave 'Once A Thief' 2 stars on the hope that the second book would make it all worthwhile. It wasn't...This book is a yawn from start to finish with inept people doing predictable, stupid things. A major factor in my annoyance is the fact that these books were sold as two books: Wasted a year waiting for the wrap-up of a sub-par story and wasted $22 instead of $11, (what's with the super big print? is more pages a way to make us feel justified in spending so much money?)

First peeve -- when you write a book that seems to rely very heavily on the first the 2nd should not take a whole year to come out. Once a thief was really quite dull & I had forgotten the entire plot. 2nd peeve -- this book was so boring that I could not get through half of it & quit with disgust.
I have read Kay Hooper's books & have enjoy her evil series & shadow series. This is "dud" series that should
not be continued.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In a continuing story from ONCE A THEIF, this book focuses on a cat burglar named Quinn. It is a big help to read the first book because the author jumps right into the story and the characters aren't introduced at all. Basically, the plot revolves around a cat burglar helping Interpol catch another cat burglar. Believe me, it is very basic. There is really nothing here to sustain a whole book. It's a very long drawn out process and not very exciting. The book reads more like the romance novel it once was. I can't believe romance readers would be very happy either in this diluted version. Annoyances abound like when an archeologist with a supposedly high IQ says she doesn't know what sackcloth is. Totally unbelievable as was so much of this book. Overall, it was a waste of time. Skip it and read something better.
