THE THIEF by Fuminori Nakamura

'Highly recommended.' Guardian Review

Foyles Book of the Day

Brilliant review on Killing Time ‘an elegant, engrossing novel and is certainly a crime story in that it reflects on the meaning of crime and theft and of living life outside social conventions.’

Book Oxygen review

Four star review in YourChoice magazine

Great review in the Big Issue: ‘A meditation on what it is like to be alone and on the nature of fate and free will, and featuring a lead character who would look at home in a 19th century Russian novel.’

We Love This Book: ‘An excellent read with great psychological depth.’

August Book of the Month on Lovereading

The Little Reader Library: ‘Fascinating crime novel, dark …and it offers a sharp observation of an artful pickpocket, a portrait of a man detached from most of society, working alone, rich in monetary terms but leading an empty, shallow existence’.

Also Crime Fiction Lover: ‘A psychological thriller that will grip your imagination from the very first page.’
