A new thriller that takes us inside a hair-raising heist, where paranoia hangs as heavy as the tropical heat, and the only law is Murphya€™s. Carra€”ex-CIAa€”is the reluctant leader of an elite crew planning a robbery of such extraordinary proportions that it will leave them all set for life. Diamonds, money-laundering, and extortion go into a timed-to-the-minute scheme that unfurls across South America, Miami, and Grand Cayman Island. Carra€™s cohorts are seasoned pros, but theya€™re wound drum-tight: months before, the man who brought them together was killed in what Carr suspects was a setup. And there are other loose ends. Some of the intel theya€™re paying for is badly inaccurate, and one of the ganga€”lately, Carra€™s lovera€”may have an agenda of her own. Carr finds himself a€œworking the paranoid calculus . . . mapping the shifting landscape of who-owes-who and who-owns-who, of loyalty, grudge, and pressurea€a€”but his biggest problems are yet to come: few of his crew are what they seem to be, and even his own past will turn out to be built on a lie. Terrifically suspenseful and psychologically complex, Thick as Thieves is a rare, penetrating look into the sophisticated machinations of an unparalleled crime, and Peter Spiegelmana€™s most accomplished and galvanizing novel yet. From the Hardcover edition.Backlit on the fourteenth tee, Mr. Boyce is a slab of granite escaped from the quarry, or spare parts from Stonehenge. Carr walks up the cart path, and from fifty yards features emerge in the monolith: massive arms and shoulders, ... This is the twenty-second time they have met, and their twentysecond meeting on a golfcourse, though never on the same course twice. Today they are in Wisconsin, just outside Madison, at a private club set beside a lake, amid hills drenched in green.
