- Author Bio
A masterful thief plots an impossible crime—stealing the Iranian Crown Jewels.
From the author of the wildly successful Dexter series, comes a new mesmerizing bad guy we can root for: Riley Wolfe is a master thief, expert at disguise and violent when he needs to be. It’s no accident, though, that Riley targets only the .1% and is willing to kill when necessary: He despises the degenerate and immoral possessors of the objects that he steals.
In this series launch, Riley targets an extraordinary set of crown jewels, a heist that will hopefully land him with a sensational collection of heirlooms and leave their owners bereft and embarrassed—or worse. Yes, these jewels are worth millions, but the true attraction for grabbing the jewels comes down to one simple fact: These jewels are absolutely unstealable. There is just no way anyone could get past the airtight security and dream of getting away with even a single diamond from the Imperial Collection. Riley Wolfe has always liked a challenge.
But the heist is only the beginning. Riley is pursued by a worthy opponent, a cop barely a step behind him. And dancing around them both is a woman, a master forger and sometimes ally of our murdering Robin Hood protagonist.
DEXTER SERIES SUCCESS: Jeff Lindsay’s nationally bestselling breakout series Dexter is beloved, and the TV adaptation was one of the most watched shows on television. There is a hungry readership for Lindsay’s fresh series debut—Dexter Morgan will find an equal in Riley Wolfe.
ROBIN HOOD ANTI-HERO READERS WILL LOVE: Yes, Riley Wolfe is a master thief, a killer when necessary, but his golden rule (to only target the .1%) makes him an immensely likeable protagonist.
SERIES LAUNCH: As evidenced by Dexter, Jeff Lindsay has the skill to craft a nationally bestselling series. Riley Wolfe is an enticingly twisted character that Jeff’s fans are going to absolutely devour.
