Steve Hamilton is one of the most acclaimed mystery writers in the world, and one of only two authors (along with Ross Thomas) to win Edgars for both Best First Novel and Best Novel. His Alex McKnight series includes two New York Times notable books, and he’s put two recent titles on the New York Times bestseller list. But it was his standalone The Lock Artist that made publishing history, his first book to win an Edgar for Best Novel, a CWA Steel Dagger for Best Thriller in the UK, and an Alex Award – which is given out by the American Library Association to those books that successfully cross over from the adult market and appeal to young adult readers.
Author Steve Hamilton has created a unique character in The Lock Artist. Michael is only 17, but is a gifted artist and can open just about any lock or safe he confronts. In addition, due to a tragic event in his past, he hasn’t spoken a single word in 10 years. The story is told in the first person and jumps between time periods and events. Still this is probably not an audiobook I would recommend to listening novices as these kinds of non-linear plots can take a little getting used to in audio format.
