Thief’s Odyssey by John L. Monk is a story of an unrepentant thief. Actually, he is a proud thief and has few qualms about his chosen profession. There is sort of a resignation and acceptance of the fact that he will eventually get caught, but perhaps not anytime soon. Bo is self-educated in the many disciplines that make up being a thief. He is a safecracker and finds entertainment in keeping models of safes in his house for practice. He is a burglar and thrills being in a house while owners are at home. Bo practices martial arts of many forms, but that his practical side emerging. He wants to be confident that he can defend himself in prison, whenever that may happen.
