This fun little heist novel reads more like tame Dan Brown than John Grisham. I’ve grown fond of Grisham’s latest thriller stories, which feel different to me than his original works. I recently finished The Rooster Bar as well and gave that one 4 stars.
This book about books starts right in the middle of the action – with the heist – and then takes you on a journey to Camino Island, FL to discover what happened to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s stolen manuscripts. The plot was clever and, though somewhat predictable, I was still guessing until the end.
If you’re doing POPSUGAR’S 2018 Reading Challenge, this one will cross off “A book involving a heist” and will give you plenty of books to choose from for the “book mentioned in another book” category. (Be sure to make a list as you go along, and if you do, please send it my way! I failed to do so.)
