Set in and around St. John's, Newfoundland, in the late 1960s, The Good Thief is the story of eighteen-year-old Sonny McCluskey, the son of an eccentric father, a man on a mission. Like his hero, Robin Hood, Charlie McCluskey is hell-bent on justice for the poor, one day at a time.

Sonny’s father dies, leaving him the family business, a small auto repair shop, and a long-standing family secret, with a summary of his unique philosophy on how to make money and do good.

Sonny promises to uphold the family tradition, but the more he discovers about his father's checkered past, the more difficult it becomes to keep his promise. Despite his good intentions, Sonny is drawn further and further into a dangerous underworld, forcing him to face some life-changing challenges he could never have foreseen.

"Leo Furey’s The Good Thief is tension-charged, roaring with suspense. The plot runs like a speeding motorcycle on a twisting road. A cast of characters so rich and crusty and deep, you’ll never forget them. Romance and bravery, criminal hijinks and high moral stakes, tender filial love, and a hunger for spiritual truth, all crashing up against rampant greed. Here are sticky fingers—pick this book up, you won’t be able to put it down.” — Lisa Moore

The Good Thief immerses the reader in an intense and complicated and authentic world, and from the first words the stakes for Sonny are high. It's Packed with cultural details, palpable environments, and fully realized characters. The narrative is part crime caper, or spree, part coming of age, and all good storytelling.-- Joan Sullivan - The Telegram --
The Good Thief is a gem-dandy yarn-- Harold Walters - Life on this Planet --
