The Devil's Share continues Wallace Stroby's thrilling series
It's been a year since professional thief Crissa Stone last pulled a job, and she's spent that time under the radar, very carefully not drawing attention to herself. That kind of life is safe, but it's boring, and it's lonely, and it's not very lucrative. So when Crissa starts to get antsy—and low on funds—she agrees to act as a thief-for-hire, partnering with a wealthy art collector to steal a truckload of plundered Iraqi artifacts before they're repatriated to their native country. But what's supposed to be a "give-up" robbery with few complications quickly turns deadly. Soon Crissa is on the run again, with both an ex-military hit squad and her own partners-in-crime in pursuit. And what should be the easiest job of her career—robbing a man who wants to be robbed—might just turn out to be the most dangerous.
About the Author
Praise For The Devil's Share: A Crissa Stone Novel (Crissa Stone Novels #4)…
“[Stroby] is excellent at plotting very fast-paced action and making readers wonder if any loyalties will survive the heist.” —New Jersey Star Ledger
“Readers hungry for an old-fashioned double-strength heist gone wrong could hardly do better.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Razor-sharp…[a] cinematic thriller, which wastes no words and packs a huge punch.” —Publishers Weekly
“Stroby’s prose is predictably lean and edgy. His Iraq War premise has plausibility, and his characters are all well sketched. Stroby is regularly compared to Elmore Leonard and other greats of hard-boiled crime, and The Devil’s Share will only burnish that reputation.” —Booklist
“[Crissa] would run rings round Reacher.” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“A classic of the genre…This taut story has no wasted words, and it packs a singular punch.” —Bookpage
