TO Mr. BoyceFROM Tina SUBJECT Prager jobPRIORITY High THE SCORE: $100 million in black money from Curtis Prager, hedge fund titan turned international criminal banker. A hard target, but a team of seasoned pros might pull it off. THE CREW CARR Ex-CIA. Expert planner and organizer, but a reluctant and untested leader.VALERIE Chameleon, honey trap, master manipulator, and lately, Carr s lover. Has an agenda of her own maybe more than one.LATIN MIKE Safecracker, muscle, a hot-headed hardcase. Unhappy with Carr s management, but the promised payout from the Prager job has so far kept him in line.BOBBY Surveillance and security systems, and Latin Mike s running buddy. If Mike is making his own play, Bobby s certain to be a part of it.DENNIS Ace hacker, youngest member of the team, brilliant but gun-shy. The death of their old boss, Declan, on their last job, has left the crew tense and paranoid. The Prager job could leave them set for life if they don t self-destruct first. UPDATE A new security chief is beefing up protections around Prager s Cayman Islands front. Carr and his crew have to tighten their already punishing timetable. A nearly impossible job just got even harder."

Reviews

"Riveting. . . . There's no dearth of heart-pounding, pulse-racing, stomach-dropping moments. . . . [An] intelligently structured thriller." --The Wall Street Journal "Slick, sophisticated, and satisfying. . . . This is thriller fiction at its best." --Lee Child "Spiegelman's ability to find glimmers of morality in a story populated by rogues, thieves and worse people that makes Thick as Thieves an enjoyable visit to a dark world." --Pittsburgh Tribune-Review "A pure delight. . . . Heists, money-laundering, and smart plotting in a novel that's reminiscent of Elmore Leonard's best work." --Jeffery Deaver "Spiegelman, who has written three thrillers since leaving Wall Street nine years ago, is being acclaimed for bringing some of the hands-on expertise and literary grace that John LeCarre brought to espionage novels to stories of capers, heists and double crosses." --Weekend Edition, NPR "Thick as Thieves takes the suspense of a typical heist caper and ratchets it up several notches. . . . An elegant feat of fictional engineering." --The Columbus Dispatch "A thriller so nicely written you flip back a few pages to re-experience an especially well-turned bit of prose." --Booklist "Thick as Thieves is anything but 'thick'--its sleek and subtle, with Spiegelman's rare eye for the telling detail. Thrilling in both tone and substance, these thieves will steal you away from whatever else you were doing, and leave you glad they did." --Don Winslow, author of Savages "What really sets this apart is the quality of Spiegelman's writing. . . . It's not every day genre prose gets that kind of polish." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Thick as Thieves is part magic, part alchemy and utterly entertaining. It is what all thrillers should aspire to be, and Spiegelman is that rare writer with both the heart and talent to pull off such an ambitious undertaking." --Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award-winning author of Innocent Monster "Thick as Thieves showcases the further development of Peter Spiegelman, one of our best writers of suspense and intrigue. His characters are forceful, smart, and his prose is supple, precise, and often poetic. Spiegelman gives us a deep inside look at scams and scammers of various sorts, and puts a big whirling plot into motion that ultimately delivers every satisfaction it promises at the start." --Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter's Bone
