Description

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars.
     Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts.
     Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets.
     But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it.

    This story seems rushed and too contrived. I wonder if it was a deadline work under contract.
  • What a twist!

    Every time I thought I knew the next move of the characters, something else would happen. Kept me interested the whole way, constantly trying to figure out if Mercer was gonna get him.
  • Worst Grisham yet

    Always a good read, any of John Grisham's books. I am remembering my grandfather's interest in collecting certain books. I wondered why he chose some of his books. He was a history professor and although most were history related, not all. Now looking through some books left to me, I wonder if he was a collector of hopeful first editions. I loved the suspense of Mr. Grisham's story. Just enough romance. And large amounts of excitement--plus captivating knowledge of rare books by favorite authors to whet my appetite.

    Very intriguing, but confusing with all the characters and their various names. Once I got half way into the book, I couldn’t put it down. In some ways there was no real closure to to the story; you’re left wondering what would happen eventually to the main characters. Maybe that’s Grisham’s style.

    Camino Island lacks the spice of other John's books. It's a linear argument, with no surprises I'm a linear plot. No surprise, no spareIs the end, meaning that the linear argument wasps indeed linear
