A new thriller that takes us inside a hair-raising heist, where paranoia hangs as heavy as the tropical heat, and the only law is Murphy's.

Carr--ex-CIA--is the reluctant leader of an elite crew planning a robbery of such extraordinary proportions that it will leave them all set for life. Diamonds, money-laundering, and extortion go into a timed-to-the-minute scheme that unfurls across South America, Miami, and Grand Cayman Island. 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. Carr finds himself "working the paranoid calculus . . . mapping the shifting landscape of who-owes-who and who-owns-who, of loyalty, grudge, and pressure"--but his biggest problems are yet to come: few of his crew are what they seem to be, and even his own past will turn out to be built on a lie.

Terrifically suspenseful and psychologically complex, Thick as Thieves is a rare, penetrating look into the sophisticated machinations of an unparalleled crime, and Peter Spiegelman's most accomplished and galvanizing novel yet.

Wow! Spiegelman nails it again. This stand alone crime novel features an elegant and complex plot, interesting characters and a compelling back story. Hard to put down.
