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.


THE INNOCENT MAN by John Grisham is now a major six-part documentary series on Netflix

Shockingly boring for a Grisham

Apart from the first and last chapter, no suspense whatsoever. More like a manual for booksellers, (first edition) book collectors and those generally interested in the book trade. But definitely nothing for those who like to read what’s advertised on the front cover: a thriller. Of course, John Grisham remains an incredibly talented writer and once again he’s dared to leave the worn-out path of the legal thriller and has tried something entirely new: these are the only two reasons why I didn’t put the book down before I was finished and they made me give the book a second star.
