Snap; Belinda Bauer

A Goldilocks burglar? Yes, please. That the thefts are part of a larger story didn't matter, but points lost for the multiPOV writing.

What happened to Jack and his siblings after their mother's disappearance and father's leaving seems to have escaped everyone's notice. That no one sees that these three children are on their own is really due to Jack's diligence about keeping up appearances (and some of the efforts are pretty funny). The mystery part, led by fairly stock policemen, is just unpredictable enough to elevate this from the usual mystery/thrillers and makes this a fun summer read.
