A dazzling and funny romantic comedy from Adam Davies, the author of The Frog King and Goodbye Lemon.

Otto Starks is a "pulse"—a highly specialized security guard who has hyperdeveloped senses and a nervous habit of popping tabs of cyanide. Otto was once a rising star but then he was rolled three times by the notorious Rat Burglar. Now, demoted and dangerously in debt to a loan shark, all he has left is Charlie Izzo, the woman he loves. Unfortunately, she is also the Rat Burglar's zealous advocate. That's bad enough. But then Otto gets robbed yet again and the cops pronounce him the prime suspect. When Charlie disappears and Otto becomes a fugitive, he realizes that the Rat Burglar has stolen much more from him than art. And to get it back he must break the law he has devoted his life to upholding. Mine All Mine is a nail-biting thriller about deception, betrayal, and ownership—in art and in love.

About the Author:

Adam Davies is also the author of Goodbye Lemon and The Frog King. He lives in Savannah, Georgia, where is a professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Know why Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible trapeze act wouldn’t work in real life? Because a hyperspecialized security guard—a “pulse”—would have already been inside the vault, patiently waiting to push the panic button. At least, that’s the premise of Davies’ fantastically imagined novel, set in a world where people with things to protect don’t rely on technology that can be subverted by airshaft egress or clipped green wires. Otto Starks is a pulse whose ability is off the charts but whose recent track record has him heading toward termination. Why does the Rat Burglar keep getting the drop on him? And why can’t he pop the question to Charlie Izzo, the love of his life? And what will happen if he can’t make the loan-shark payments on his boat, the Clean Getaway? In a novel that is equal parts comic monologue, screwball romance, and crime story, Davies employs clichéd suspense devices with results that are wholly original. If we’re mildly impatient when the plot mechanics take over, that’s only because we can’t get enough of Davies’ wonderful word-nerd writing, which scarcely needs a raison d’être. Our own words can’t do this cartoonish but touching novel justice—you’ll have to read it for yourself. --Keir Graff
