Dear Librarians,

My new novel, THICK AS THIEVES, takes you inside a hair-raising heist, where paranoia hangs as heavy as tropical heat, and the only law is Murphy's. Carr—ex-CIA— is the reluctant leader of an elite crew planning a robbery that will leave them set for life. Diamonds, money laundering, and extortion go into a timed-to-the-minute scheme that unfolds across South America, Miami, and the Caymans. Carr's cohorts are seasoned pros, but they're wound drum-tight—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—lately, 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 is a lie.

All best,
Thick as Thieves / Peter Spiegelman / Knopf / Hardcover; 320 Pages
