What price would you put on a second chance?
When Alex Cassidy and Diane Alison meet by chance at a party in Princeton, New Jersey, there are instant sparks. Both are single parents living in wealthy suburbia, independent, highly competent and seemingly settled in their lives. She runs a successful catering business. He’s part of a crew that robs banks, casinos and jewellery stores around the world. Neither realises initially that their lives have overlapped before, or that their shared history and burgeoning relationship will come to threaten everything they love. As Alex prepares for one final, daunting job, he discovers that he’s not the only one with secrets – and that both of them are playing for the highest stakes imaginable.

‘A highly bingeable read. I have never before cheered so hard for a positive outcome for a group of criminals in fiction.’
‘I nearly gave myself paper cuts flying through Parish’s exhilarating thrill ride.’
‘This is a fast-moving, machine-gun of a book, a “one last job” and heist novel and unlikely love story all rolled into one.’

In a word: thrilling.
A dark jewel, polished and precision-cut ... Love and Theft pays tribute to classic capers - and rivals the best of them for verve and ingenuity. A breathless adventure both starry-eyed and cool-blooded, both charming and diabolical.
Beautifully written, and crackling with full-throttle tension, Love and Theft knocked me out. An electrifying novel. Stan Parish has the stuff. For real.
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?
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!
