From the mind that brought you Dexter, there's a new bad boy we want to root for in town. Riley Wolfe is a man with all the plans, and from the first scene he had me wanting him to take it all. He steals from the mega rich and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. He is amazing at his job, but that has lead to him getting bored. Every job has become too easy, too predictable. So Riley decides to look for a job that is impossible, one that there is no way he can pull off. He decides to steal the Iranian Crown Jewels. Hot on his heels is an FBI agent who wants nothing more than to bring Riley in. I loved that we got to see all the planning that Riley did for his heist. Jeff Lindsay brought all of the humor and snark that he is known for in this new book. Riley is the bad guy, but I couldn't help but want him to get away with stealing anything and everything. -Victoria
A masterful thief plots an impossible crime—stealing the Iranian Crown Jewels.
From the author of the wildly successful Dexter series comes a new, mesmerizing bad guy we can root for: Riley Wolfe. He’s a master thief, expert at disguise, and not averse to violence when it’s needed. It’s no accident, though, that Riley targets the wealthiest 0.1 percent and is willing to kill them when they’re in his way: he despises the degenerate and immoral rich and loves stealing their undeserved and unearned valuables.
In this series launch, Riley aims for an extraordinary target in a heist that will make history. Riley will try to steal the Crown Jewels of Iran. Yes, these jewels are worth billions, but the true attraction for grabbing them comes down to one simple fact: it can’t be done. Stealing these jewels is absolutely impossible. The collection is guarded by space-age electronics and two teams of heavily armed mercenaries. No one could even think of getting past the airtight security and hope to get away alive, let alone with even a single diamond from the Imperial Collection.
No one but Riley Wolfe. He’s always liked a challenge.
But this challenge may be more than even he can handle. Aside from the impenetrable security, Riley is also pursued by a brilliant and relentless cop who is barely a step behind him.
With the aid of his sometime ally, a beautiful woman who is a master art forger, Riley Wolfe goes for the prize that will either make him a legend—or, more likely, leave him dead.
