Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A delightfully lighthearted caper . . . [a] fast-moving, entertaining tale.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, impossible to resist.
        
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures.
     
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Cable’s circle of literary friends, to get close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets.

A Pleasant Step Away From Legal Thrillers

Apparently, I'm the second person to have actually read the book and review it. I almost never write reviews because I don't figure people need my opinion to decide whether they'll like a book, but seeing the poor rating this book has because of two weirdos who haven't even bothered to read it, I decided to throw my 2 cents out there.

What you need to know is that this is not a legal thriller. It's actually a nice divergence away from that for Grisham. It's certainly not a deep or philosophical read, and I got through it in about 3 hours. I also figured the end story about halfway through. But it was enjoyable and didn't become preachy, like I've found some of his books to be.

Overall, I'd call it an easy, breezy summer read.

Intriguing story

Well written, good solid plot that has the reader hoping the end will be a they would like but not quite sure. I enjoyed the book immensely and spent every moment I had to pick it up and continue reading. Hated to see it end.

Campaign Island

A bit disappointed in that the read was very simplistic, and there was some repetition that bothered me. It seemed contrived. I've always liked your work but didn't think this was your best effort.
