What price would you pay for a second chance?
Alex Cassidy is very good at what he does. He and his crew have just pulled off an epic, record-breaking precision jewel heist in Las Vegas. And now Alex has a shot at his biggest score so far: a normal, happy life with Diane Alison, the woman of his dreams.
Neither of them realise it, but Alex and Diane’s lives have overlapped before. Their shared history – and the secrets they’ve been keeping – will threaten everything they love. Forced to mastermind one final and unthinkably dangerous job, Alex and Diane are playing for the highest stakes imaginable. Can they pull it off?
‘A slick, snappily written thriller [with an] absolute showstopper of a prologue . . . Head and shoulders above the average thriller.’ Guardian
I just read the next great American crime novelist. Love and Theft is a smart, electric, totally original tale that I absolutely could not put down. Fans of Elmore Leonard rejoice. Stan Parish has arrived!
Love and Theft is the caper thriller we’ve all been waiting for - lean, sophisticated, ice-cold, endlessly surprising. What took it so long to get here?
Beautifully written, and crackling with full-throttle tension, Love and Theft knocked me out. An electrifying novel. Stan Parish has the stuff. For real.
This terrific page-turner has it all: wonderful characters, frenetic pace, blood-curdling tension, cinematic action, and hugely satisfying twists. Highly recommended.
