Description

The new Stevens and Windermere novel from Owen Laukkanen, author of the dazzlingly acclaimed The Professionals—“one of the best debuts of the year" (Mystery Scene).

Accountant Carter Tomlin has a secret. He’s lost his job, the bills are mounting, and his perfect life is hanging by a thread. Desperate, he robs a bank. Then he robs another.

Reuniting for the first time after their first case, FBI Special Agent Carla Windermere homes in on Tomlin from one direction, while Minnesota state investigator Kirk Stevens picks up the trail from another.

Because Carter Tomlin likes robbing banks. And it’s not because of the money anymore. Tomlin has guns and a new taste for violence. And he’s not quitting anytime soon.

About the Author

After graduation, Owen Laukkanen answered a Craigslist ad—and for the next three years, he was the tournament reporter for a poker website, traveling from the luxurious casinos of Monaco and Macau to the sketchiest card rooms of Atlantic City. A resident of Vancouver, he is now at work on a third book featuring Stevens and Windermere.




Praise For Criminal Enterprise

“Laukkanen is slam-bang brilliant.”—John Sandford

“Owen Laukkanen is a writer to watch.”—Thomas Perry

“A terrific new voice.”—John Lescroart

Praise for The Professionals

“Really terrific—characters that live and breathe, and chills aplenty.”—Lee Child

“Like waking up on a roller coaster, just as the car plunges down a steep fall. Laukkanen’s prose is fighting-weight lean, and the pace is relentless.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“A page-turning blend of classic suspense fiction and chillingly postmodern amorality. Ingenious plotting, perfect-pitch characterization, and evocative sense of place combine to create an impressive debut.”—Jonathan Kellerman
