Description

All trails became dead ends. Tips that had at first seemed urgent now faded away. The waiting game began. Whoever had the manuscripts would want money, and a lot of it. They would surface eventually, but where and when, and how much would they want?

The most daring and devastating heist in literary history targets a high security vault located deep beneath Princeton University. Valued at $25 million (though some would say priceless), the five manuscripts of F. Scott Fitzgerald's only novels are amongst the most valuable in the world. After an initial flurry of arrests, both they and the ruthless gang of thieves who took them have vanished without trace. Dealing in stolen books is a dark business, and few are initiated to its arts - which puts Bruce Kable right on the FBI's Rare Asset Recovery Unit's watch list.

A struggling writer burdened by debts, Mercer Mann spent summers on Florida's idyllic Camino Island as a kid, in her grandmother's beach cottage. Now she is being made an offer she can't refuse: to return to the peace of the island, to write her novel - and get close to a certain infamous bookseller, and his interesting collection of manuscripts....

Maybe fun for true book enthusiasts

I found the story line slow and tedious. I selected it having loved Grisham as a teenager and enjoying other books read by Lavoy but this one was truly laborious to listen to. No twists no passion no crazy characters just extensive detail about failing authors and literary dealers... I even dropped off during the last chapters and can't be bothered to go back to listen to the climax. Boring...

Enjoyed The Story

Loved reading. Full of suspense from the beginning. A bit different from other books written by J Grisham.

nicht das Beste Buch von Grisham.

der Plot ist etwas simpel. die Spannung will nicht so Recht aufkommen. und die Sprecherin ist auch Recht einfältig

ganz ok, für einen Grisham aber eher schwach...

Grisham hat mit seinen vielen richtig tollen Titeln die Messlatte selbst sehr hoch gelegt. Dieses Buch wird von allen Grisham Fans sowieso gelesen/gehört, ist aber gemessen an den vielen anderen Büchern, eher schwach, eine vorhersehbare Geschichte, gerade heraus erzählt, ohne viele Wendungen, es gibt keine Überraschungen, irgendwann kommt die story zu ihrem logischen Ende. Was etwas stört, ist der oft "weinerliche" Ton im Vortrag, wenn die weibliche Hauptperson in Bedrängnis kommt und der Versuch der Vorleserin, männlichen Charaktere durch das Verstellen der Stimme eine besonders "dunkle" Färbung zu geben.
Fazit: Ganz ok, hat man aber einen Tag später wieder vergessen, nichts bleibt hängen...
