After surviving an act of violence as a child, Michael stops talking and grows up with the ability to open any lock or safe, a talent he sells to any buyer in the crime world, until a botched heist forces him to go home to face the secret that has kept him so quiet.
Mike, as the narrator of Steve Hamilton's LOCK ARTIST identifies himself, is a very quiet guy. In fact, he hasn't spoken a word since a violent event left him a traumatized eight-year-old. Since Mike has never mentioned the details of the event to anyone it is hard to understand exactly how, but somehow he emerged from the trauma with insanely good lock-picking skills. His talents have led him into a life of crime, and now he's behind bars. Readers will be drawn in, as Mike relates his extreme safecracking jobs working for a dangerous Detroit mobster, circling around the horrific and formative event that set him on his path.
