Format: Paperback
Simply put The French Art of Stealing is a story about a combat photographer's seduction and survival while on an extended vacation in Paris, only there's nothing simple about it.

Author Mark Zero offers up a compelling mystery and wraps it a series of riveting chases. Starting in our hero's cozy local café Zero sends us on an amphibious tour of Paris that sets a new standard for dark, dank and desperate. Everyone is late and no one is honest to each other or themselves, except the café owner.

Zero's consistently colorful and flowing prose makes Stealing an easy and entertaining read. It is the perfect novel for an airline flight, treadmill or poolside.

Wow, a very good book that might have brought me back to reading.

I haven't read a book in 4 years, thanks to short on-line stories and easy access to news.
A friend of mine was so into Mark Zero's writing that I had to give it a try.

I am glad I did. The French Art of Stealing allowed me to remember that with good writing and my imagination I can still get caught of in a mystery.

I am looking forward to trying Mark Zero's Blood & Chocolate.

Format: Paperback
Mark Zero's new novel, The French Art of Stealing, is one of those books that you don't want to put down. But if you are like me, a mother who doesn't have any time for myself except for the occasional evening, it's the sort of book that you can't wait to pick up again and lose yourself in. Set in Paris, the story centers around a group of friends who almost by accident get involved in the theft of a highly valued painting. Although wading within the dark and dank world of crime (much like swimming in the polluted river Seine, a metaphor that Zero skillfully allows to flow through the story) the friends comically fumble their way through to a well deserved ending. With just a few stops along the way for a bit of sex. I highly recommend it.

By Nat on September 28, 2010
Format: Paperback
The French Art of Stealing by Mark Zero grabs you in the first pages and carries you through the book with one exciting scene after another. Descriptively set in Paris, the book gives a glimpse into places and people in the city that you would not see unless you were a local. The protagonist is witty and charming - you believe in him from the get-go and really want him to succeed.

A short, fun and intelligent read, I highly suggest it!

This book was written by Mark Zero, who is the son of a friend. It is very good and keeps your interest. It is also comical. I enjoyed reading this book very much.
