What is Chris Ewan reading?

This weekend's featured contributor to Writers Read: Chris Ewan, author of The Good Thief's Guide to Amsterdam and The Good Thief's Guide to Paris.

One paragraph from his entry:

Full of pace and attitude, it reminds me of George Pelecanos’s Nick’s Trip, and I’m eager to read White’s second Jackson Donne novel, The Evil That Men Do.[read on]
