Tinti (editor-in-chief of the amazing One Story magazine) earned plenty of comparisons to Robert Louis Stevenson for this let-me-just-read-a-few-pages-oh-my-god-how-is-it-already-2-am debut novel, a loving homage to 19th-century adventure stories. Not only does she keep her plot rolling along with expert pacing, but Tinti renders her cast of misfits—assassins, grave robbers, one-handed orphans—so compassionately that I was heartbroken to watch them go.— Sam
“Hannah Tinti's The Good Thief features an orphan, a con man, a giant zombie, a mad doctor, a dwarf, and a sinister factory. Need I say more? It takes a pretty incredible writer to create a 19th-century boy's adventure story with a wry, 21st-century sensibility. Once you begin, you'll be saying 'just one more chapter.'”

“Ren, one of many orphans at Saint Anthony's Orphanage for boys, is approaching the age when he will be conscripted into the army. A swaggering Benjamin Nab appears and claims Ren as his long-lost brother. But, as soon as they are on the way, it is clear that Benjamin Nab is not anything he seems to be. Tinti has written a wonderful, compelling novel.”
