*****The Sunday Times 'Thriller of the Month', Mail on Sunday 'Thriller of the Week' and Sun 'Best for Mystery-Lovers'*****
Someone is about to make a killing . . .
The most daring and devastating heist in literary history targets a high security vault located deep beneath Princeton University.
Valued at $25 million (though some would say priceless) the five manuscripts of F Scott Fitzgerald's only novels are amongst the most valuable in the world. After an initial flurry of arrests, both they and the ruthless gang of thieves who took them have vanished without trace.
Now it falls to struggling writer Mercer Mann to crack a case that has thwarted the FBI's finest minds.

Every now and then Grisham tries something new. This year he hit a bull's-eye with a beach book featuring a bunch of writers, not a bunch of lawyers. There's a huge sense of fun to this little experiment — Janet Maslin, Independent
