Just Watch Me: A Novel
Riley Wolfe is a master thief capable of the impossible theft. Recently he has nabbed a valuable statue from a felonious billionaire in front of a large crowd. He is at the top of his craft, however, his success rings hollow. The challenges lack depth. The next target appears serendipitously in an airline magazine, the prize of nearly incalculable value. The loot will be under heavily armed presence. Riley is meticulous in planning a theft of this scale, but anything less would merit arrest or worse. He reaches out to adept artist and friend Monique for her aid in pulling off the score. Meanwhile, Special Agent Frank Delgado is on the trail of Wolfe. Delgado, possessed with a consuming obsession, embarks on a solo mission to apprehend Wolfe. The history of Wolfe may hold the key to unraveling his criminal forays. As Wolfe dives deeper into his heist, the lies, stakes, and bodies pile up. Will Wolfe be successful?
Just Watch Me is the latest from Jeff Lindsay illustrating his versatility as a mystery author. The book’s depth weighs in early and gets you hooked. Riley is an endearing protagonist, despite his various moral shortcomings. Agent Delgado compels the reader to choose a side to root for, yet one might just find both alluring enough. The story builds throughout as does the anticipation, and the reader will be justly rewarded. Excellent new addition.
