A career criminal with OCD tendencies and a savant-like genius for bringing order to his crime scenes, Martin considers himself one of the best in the business. After all, he's been able to steal from the same people for years on end, virtually undetected. Of course, this could also be attributed to his unique business model: He takes only items that will go unnoticed by the homeowners. After all, who in their right mind would miss a roll of toilet paper, a half-empty bottle of maple syrup, or a rarely used piece of china buried within some dusty cabinet?
Even though Martin has never met these homeowners, he's spent hours in their houses, looking through their photo albums and reading their journals. In essence, he's developed a friendship of sorts with them, and accordingly he decides to intervene more in their lives - playing the part of a rather odd guardian angel - even though it means breaking many of his twitchy, neurotic rules.
Along the way, Martin not only improves the lives of others, but he also discovers love and finds that his own life is much better lived on the edge (at least some of the time). Something Missing is a hilarious, gripping, and often profound novel about a man used to planning every second of his life who is suddenly forced to confront chaos and spontaneity.
