Here is the Amazon page which will do a better job describing it than I could, but it is basically about an inter-planetary thief with a conscience. I would classify it as sci-fi kind of. The author is Harry Harrison. It is very light and quick reading.

I didn't know Michael Chrichton died. Rats. I really enjoy him. :(
His "Andromeda Strain" started my lifelong search for books, before the movie comes out. His dying was shock and sorrow, one of my favorite authors.

Ah! now I remember what you were reading. As we always say, "So many books, so little time."
