You’ve read (and seen) this one before: A sophisticated criminal crew get together for One Last Job that will, if all goes according to plan, let them get out of the game for good. But some stock characters and a premise as clichéd as its title can’t derail this well-constructed crime thriller. In Thick as Thieves, Spiegelman weaves a complex, satisfying tale around gang leader Carr, a onetime CIA trainee with a level head and an increasingly untrustworthy bunch of co-conspirators. Though the end has perhaps one too many surprise! moments, Spiegelman’s sharp prose and deft plotting elevate this Ocean’s Eleven-style caper story. B+
