    I read The Lock Artist because it won the Edgar Award in 2011. I was on one of those challenges where I decided to read every Edgar award winner from each year.

    The Lock Artist stood out because it had received awards recognition from other prizes. If I’m being honest, the book felt like Steve Hamilton was doing everything in his power to repel me. The Lock Artist was written in first person, which I hate, and it kept jumping all over the place.

    But you know what? Hamilton’s writing mesmerized me. This book is awesome. Before you dismiss Hamilton as a one-hit-wonder, I just finished The Second Life of Nick Mason, and I was entertained. Hamilton could become my favorite author, especially if the quality of his books remains strong.
