The Apostrophe Thief book. The Apostrophe Thief is a bit dated but definitely st Another great police procedural from Barbara Paul. I'm re-reading this series and loving it. I liked the behind-the-scenes insight into the police department and the theater world, I enjoyed Marian's interactions with her actress friend Kelly and her mysterious boyfriend Curt Holland (who "talks in blank verse"), and the plot was a lot of fun. Included in the characters are a set of siblings named Matthew, Mark, Luke.

The Apostrophe Thief" is definitely the better of the two Barbara Paul books I've read. In fact, the title for this book is the reason I picked both of them up. I was fascinated by the title. What is an Apostrophe Thief? Does he steal the apostrophe from "it's" to make it "its?" Well, it is the name of a Braodway play that has been burglarized for items that can be re-sold to collerctors.

A very readable mystery set in the world of the theater and touching upon the collectors who define their lives by what memorabilia they can beg, steal or buy. NYPD Detective Sergeant Marian Latch is at her best when investigating a theater robbery and, later, murder, at her worst trying to deal with the politics of the job and the slithering reptiles who sometimes wear captain's bars. The characterization is great for the good, bad and zany individuals she meets, even for the jerk of a boyfriend, whom I could easily have done without. If I have any complaint about the book, it's that the case was wrapped up a bit hurriedly at the end.

This is really fun- lots of theater stuff. Anyone who likes plot twists would enjoy this. My sister and I knew her "way back when" when we we in college together.
