Thick as Thieves

Peter Spiegelman

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense

A hair-raising heist thriller, in which paranoia hangs as heavy as the tropical heat and the only law is Murphy's.

Carr - ex-CIA - is the reluctant leader of an elite crew planning a robbery of such extraordinary proportions that it will leave them set for life. Diamonds, money laundering, and extortion go into a timed-to-the-minute scheme that unfurls across South America, Miami and Grand Cayman Island.

Carr's cohorts are seasoned pros, but they're wound drum-tight - as, months before, the man who brought them together was killed in what Carr suspects was a setup. And there are other loose ends: some of the intel they're paying for is badly inaccurate, and one of the gang - who is also Carr's lover - may have an agenda of her own.

But Carr's biggest problems are yet to come, because few on his crew are what they seem to be, and even his own past may not be all he thought it was.

Thick as Thieves is an ingeniously crafted and perfectly paced thriller. Peter Spiegelman's percolating prose has you scrambling to piece the puzzle together and then, when the revelation finally arrives, wondering why you even tried.
