What do you do when you are offered more money for one single act than most people can make in a year? What do you do with skills so refined that only a thief can appreciate them? Do you enjoy travel? Seeing the world? Meeting new and exciting people? How can you put all these things into one package and call it a “career”?
Simone, Marie, Jane, Adelina, Mary or whatever name she chooses to use at the moment, has a unique set of skills and a different outlook on life. Anonymous and pretty, she uses anything at her fingertips to get the job done. Join her as she uses them to go to one of the most dangerous islands in the world to bring back a specific item for a client who has commissioned her. Will she be able to obtain it when she finds out she has been misled? Will it kill her, get her killed, or will she wind up in a Brazilian prison for the rest of her days?

I have enjoyed the Malice series and now K’AM has a new protagonist of morally questionable values. A modern Irene Adler or Modesty Blaise. To tell you the truth, I was hesitant about finally reading this book. As a seemingly side character in the Malice series, Simone seemed to me to be of only passing interest.
However, within a few pages of beginning “Thief of Snake Island”, I became enchanted with K’Am’s clever plotting and how she revealed Simone’s character as a truly complex personality. Who had labored and fought as necessary to create a better life for herself.
And for all us Alice fans there is very interesting background material of the years the two women spent together as students and how their lasting friendship evolved.
There is a previous ebook to the “Thief” series, that I will have to acquire and I look forward to those that will follow out of K’Anne Meinal’s artistic imagineering.
