In his sixth novel, author Julien Ayotte has written a fast-paced page turner. A recent string of burglaries puzzles the local police. Drew Diamond, a retired detective, follows clues leading up to the identity of the intruder, but what he uncovers places him in a dilemma. Could Sydney Malone, his new love interest, be more than the real estate agent she plays by day? And can a lowly mobster finally escape his life of petty crime? From Margarita Island, Venezuela, to the Great North Woods of New Hampshire, and to the streets of Afghanistan, discover how they are all connected to each other by a stolen strand of pearls.
Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author, says that Ayotte writes “structured tales that lie somewhere between Harlan Coben and David Baldacci on the thriller scale. All told, an author worth reading, remembering, and recommending.”
