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.

A bewitching blend of high-stakes spying mission and summer romance, with a fascinatingly ambiguous central character
The Sunday Times
The gripping plot will have you devouring the chapters in such a frantic fashion you'll begin to wonder if you are somehow complicit in this perfect crime
Heat
This story take you into the dark underworld of the black market for rare books. Think Da Vinci Code meets Sherlock Holmes
Sun
Grisham shows charm, wit and a light touch.
The Times
It's not often that bookish readers are a thriller's target audience so this one is very welcome.
Literary Review
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

In both of these irresistible reads Grisham introduces readers to memorable characters whom he capably brings to life
