Ep 353 - The Lies of Locke Lamora, by Scott Lynch

Scott Lynch's 2006 debut novel is a "sword and sorcery crime novel" about a gang of thieves who get caught up in a power struggle for the fate of their city. The Lies of Locke Lamora bumps up against issues of class and privilege, but it's mostly a story about cool thieves doing cool cons.

Talking points include Omar Little, fantasy theatrics, and crossing the double-crossers.
