A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton Universityâs Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars.
Â Â Â 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.
Â Â Â Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writerâs 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 Cableâs circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets.
Â Â Â But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and thereâs trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it.
