Entertaining read, good writing, but how does an ultra-clever fellow like Junior Bender get set up so incredibly easily at the beginning of the book, which sets the stage for the story? Kind of defies even suspension of disbelief.

Crashed was clever and funny! I liked the characters, and the plot was quite intricate. Junior is a burglar with a heart of gold. As I started this book, I felt guilty for not reading something more serious in these serious times, but the longer I read the more immersed I became. Junior is manipulated into working for a crime syndicate leader, and the plot twists just keep coming. Junior is funny, and the book has a satisfying ending. I give this book 4-4.5 stars, and I would definitely read another book in this series.
