Just Watch Me





Title: Just Watch Me
Series : Riley Wolfe #1
Author:Jeff Lindsey
Genre: thriller
Rating: 4
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. He’s a master thief, expert at disguise, and not averse to violence when it’s needed. It’s no accident, though, that Riley targets the wealthiest 0.1 percent and is willing to kill them when they’re in his way: he despises the degenerate and immoral rich and loves stealing their undeserved and unearned valuables.

In this series launch, Riley aims for an extraordinary target in a heist that will make history. Riley will try to steal the Crown Jewels of Iran. Yes, these jewels are worth billions, but the true attraction for grabbing them comes down to one simple fact: it can’t be done. Stealing these jewels is absolutely impossible. The collection is guarded by space-age electronics and two teams of heavily armed mercenaries. No one could even think of getting past the airtight security and hope to get away alive, let alone with even a single diamond from the Imperial Collection.

No one but Riley Wolfe. He’s always liked a challenge.

But this challenge may be more than even he can handle. Aside from the impenetrable security, Riley is also pursued by a brilliant and relentless cop who is barely a step behind him.

With the aid of his sometime ally, a beautiful woman who is a master art forger, Riley Wolfe goes for the prize that will either make him a legend—or, more likely, leave him dead

My thoughts
Would I recommend it? Yes
Will I read more of this series? Maybe
Will I read more by this author? Yes
This is the first time I've read anything by this author and I can see why some people like his writing.But as a new to me author he writing was kind of slow going and it took me a while to get into the story as well as to get a feel for the main character. But there was somethings that I  really  did enjoy and like and that was how it give off  the feeling like I was watching a movie, and an old one at that, for some unknown reason some of the stuff  that Riley did remind me of  the old black and white heist movies and how the characters planned out their heist. With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it , and I can't wait to see what happens next.
