Heist, James Patterson & Rees Jones | Book Review

Heist opening line: The thief’s gloved fingers beat against the steering wheel, a rhythm as hectic as the young man’s darting eyes.

My blurb:

How does a well-planned heist go so wrong? And what can be done to fix it? Three people are invested in ensuring the diamond sale goes to plan. They are not thieves by profession but one of them is ex-military. And it is his training that could save them from their pursuers.

Heist

Three thieves have planned the perfect diamond heist. They’ve monitored the Hatton Garden jeweller for months and are ready to make the hit. But they were not expecting a rival crew to show up at exactly the same time.

After a bloody fight, the three thieves come away with the diamonds and set off to meet their buyer in Amsterdam. But now it’s not only the police who are chasing them, and not only the diamonds that are at stake.

My verdict:

This was an average read with a surprise twist in the tale. I enjoyed the virtual walk through Amsterdam, being familiar with the city. I did not enjoy the abrupt ending however. This is another book in James Patterson’s Bookshots.
