Pulling off an impossible crime is the only way he can stay alive.
Stealing a Faberge egg. Surviving a double cross. And pulling off the most incredible robbery ever, for the world’s most demanding—and dangerous—collector.
This will be the challenge of thief extraordinaire Riley Wolfe’s life.
Held prisoner by a top-dog international arms dealer, and a top-notch art collector, Riley has to steal an artwork. Small problem—it’s a fresco, “The Liberation of St. Peter.” Slightly larger problem—it’s in the Vatican.
And, it's a literal wall.
Riley has no choice: agree or die. But when his captor turns him loose, he finds even more dangerous criminals waiting to ensnare him, threatening his life and the life of the woman he loves. The threat is clear. Riley knows they both have only one way out.
With wicked dialogue, tons of explosive twists, and cinema-worthy scenes, Jeff Lindsay’s Fool Me Twice is a wildly entertaining caper starring an antihero you’ll root for, Riley Wolfe.
In Lindsay's intense sequel to 2019's Just Watch Me, an ally's betrayal leads to wisecracking master thief Riley Wolfe being forced to work for Patrick Boniface, "an arms dealer who scares the crap out of the other arms dealers." Boniface, who's also an art collector, wants Wolfe to steal Raphael's Liberation of St. Peter, a fresco painted on a wall inside the Vatican. Wolfe agrees to this lunatic scheme in order to avoid being tortured by Boniface's sadistic sidekick. To make matters worse, Wolfe's meeting with Boniface comes to the attention of a rival crook, Bailey Stone, who abducts the thief and threatens to harm Wolfe's love-interest, art forger Monique, unless he double crosses Boniface. Stone wants Wolfe to commit the theft, and then use the delivery of the fresco to Boniface as a cover for Stone and his team to kill Boniface. Meanwhile, Wolfe remains the quarry of a dogged FBI agent. Lindsay devises a satisfying plan for the impossible crime, and continues to make Wolfe, who has a violent side of his own, an intriguing protagonist. Only the solution is a bit of a letdown. Readers looking for a page-turner won't be disappointed. \n
