A jewel thief with a conscience and an old-school detective go head to head as a series of robberies across the United Kingdom escalate.
This book is part of a series in which the author poses interesting questions – in this case, what if the bad guy of the story was someone the reader actually felt a great deal of sympathy for? The result is a very enjoyable read, with great characters and a twisting plot. There was a fair bit of introduction, but once the story really got going I found it hard to put down. Jones and his team are the detectives you want on your side. More than that, you want them by your side. You want to share every moment of their investigations, which is key for a good fictional detective team. And Sean Freeman is an unlikely crook with an interesting personal agenda. Great story, highly recommended.
