Quiet, brilliant IT programmer Henri Pichon has skimmed a fortune from one of the biggest banks in Europe. For twenty years, day after day, penny by penny, using a complicated electronic process, he has amassed a fortune. Nevertheless, he is the hero of the story. So this tale is essentially how he did it and why he is the sympathetic character of the novel, in my opinion. The author, Christophe Paul, has an MA in IT computing so his complex explanations about Henri’s actions sound authentic. It’s a contemporary story.
The Penny Thief is a translation from the original Le voleur des centimes, a much more romantic title in my view. That being said, this novel is a very good translation and certainly captures the essence of an action-packed romp.
Note: This book is rated P = profanity.
