Just Watch Me, a new series launcher by Jeff Lindsay (best known for the Dexter novels which were adapted into a hit TV show) follows Riley Wolfe, a master thief and con artist who targets the ultra-wealthy and thrives on setting increasingly difficult challenges for himself. When Riley hears that the Iranian Crown Jewels will be on temporary exhibit in New York under the tightest security money can buy, he can’t resist trying to steal them. With an FBI agent at his heels, he puts together a staggeringly complex plan to pull off the heist.
While Riley is not necessarily a character that readers can easily root for, it’s certainly fun to watch his plans unfold. If you love intricately plotted suspense novels, you won’t be able to put this book down.
