MORE BURGLAR DIARIES:
Published by Byker Books, 2009. First published by DMKing Publishing, 2007.
Bex and Ollie are a couple of small-time burglars. They scratch a living robbing factories, burgling shops and emptying offices around the back-water town of Tatley.
Bex is the brains, Ollie drives the van. Neither are particularly ambitious, preferring instead to think small and live comfortably, rather than aim high and risk time.
The lads don’t have it all their own way though; ‘Weasel’ of CID is only ever one faltering step behind them, the local criminal competition will do anything to stitch them up and the loves of their lives are wondering what the hell they’ve done to deserve them.
Things are about to finally catch up with Bex and Ollie.
Following on from The Burglar Diaries and based on the BBC comedy series Thieves Like Us, narrator Bex take us on another tour of Tatley’s rooftops and drainpipes, and through lock-ups, cock-ups and jobs as he recounts More Burglar Diaries.
Featuring a full novelisation of all six episodes of the BBCThree show, plus an all new and final episode for literature’s least favourite burglars.

Publishing History: I originally published this book myself through lulu.com when Serpent's Tail turned it down, their reasons being that Thieves Like Us never got a second series so they would've been a year behind the original airing of the show. However, the book proved quite expensive to produce and ship through lulu.com so I spent some time searching for another publisher and Andy Rivers of Byker Books kindly stepped up to the mark. Apologies to those of you who forked out the money to get the original lulu edition, but you can take some comfort from the fact that it's now been withdrawn from sale and only 60 or 70 people actually bought it, so you have a collectors' item on your hands. At least you would have if anyone actually collected my books.
Foreign translations: Also published in Russia by AST.
