Mr. Whippel, his German cousin

Danger, danger!

I've developed some pretty violent tastes. Can anyone recommend books (preferably fiction) about any of these things?

.antique guns and what have you
.jewel thieves or kleptomaniacs
.general espionage or people on the run, or a crime novel that's not a whodunit
.lots and lots of crime and weapons, minimal sex.

ETA: Throw in a robot and I'll love you forever.

Thanks in advance for all who comment.
