theft and magic

So I got home from the lab late last night and found someone had broken in
and ripped off my crappy old laptop (and fortunately ignored my silver
flutes).  I thought how nice it would be to be able to cast a "simple
divination", or anyway to call up Sethra and have her do it.  This made me
wonder how Kiera and other thieves manage to operate.  In Jhereg it turns
out someone (maybe even Kiera?) stole an important book from Morrolan - it
seems to me he ought to have been able to find it by sorcery or witchcraft
unless there's some set of counterspells for fences...
