This one is part of the Amazon Big Deal promo posted by member djulian, but it's worth looking at if you haven't seen it.
Lemons Never Lie by Richard Stark (Donald Westlake) is currently $0.99
http://www.amazon.com/Lemons-Never-L.../dp/B007QW58W0

This takes place as a parallel series to the more well-known Parker series, and features another thief, Alan Grofield. (Interestingly, there's a pair of books, one featuring Grofield, and one featuring Parker, that cover each character's part in, and reaction to, a heist gone bad.)
This one had been out of print for a long time, so it's good to have another chance to read it!

Quote:
Grofield is less calculating and more hot-blooded than Parker; think fewer guns, more dames.

Not that there isn’t violence and adventure aplenty. Available as an e-book–only edition, Lemons Never Lie—a taut thriller that finds Grofield recruited by a man named Myers for a sketchy brewery heist. But when Grofield gets cold feet, he has to decide if it’s riskier to go through with the plot, or to say no to Myers.
