It helps that he only takes things the homeowner would never notice are missing-like a roll of toilet paper or a bottle of maple syrup. Martin has spent so much time snooping through homes he feels like he knows the owners, but when he starts meddling in their personal lives, his precise world turns to chaos.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Who wants to catch a thief when he’s as endearing as Martin Railsback, the oddball hero of Matthew Dicks’ first novel, Something Missing?” New York Times Book Review
“The obsessive-compulsive Martin Railsback is a strange but lovable antihero.” Boston Globe
“Charming…[Dicks has] created a winning hero in Martin, a crook with a heart of gold.” Publishers Weekly
“A splendid novel, written with loving attention to character and detail; Martin is so vividly realized that he threatens to step off the page and into the reader’s own living room.” Booklist (starred review)
“Combines the neurotic atmosphere of a Woody Allen film with the light touch of Lawrence Block’s Bernie Rhodenbarr novels in a unique debut…A very funny adventure about the mechanics of burglary and the fragility of an orderly life.” Kirkus Reviews
