Siler Tries Nonfiction

One of my favorite crime writers, Jenny Siler, is going in a different direction for her newest project:

Myles J. Connor, Jr., and novelist Jenny Siler’s HONOR AMONG THIEVES,

pitched as a Catch Me If You Can-style memoir by the Boston criminal

mastermind long assumed to be responsible for the biggest art theft in

American history, the 1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist, to

Bruce Nichols at Collins, in a good deal, for publication in 2009, by

Dan Conaway at Writers House (NA).

Just how involved Connor may have been in that heist is in dispute – especially as he was in prison at the time it took place – but this promises to be a fascinating book no matter how much (or little) it reveals.
