Riley Wolfe has a problem. He is just too good at what he does. And what is that you ask? Riley is a cold-blooded master thief. When he sees a $15 billion Iranian diamond is coming to an American museum, he decides to steal it. Even with state-of-the-art electronic security, retired special forces guards and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards watching? Riley’s up for the challenge. As he says, “Think that’s crazy? Suicidal? Impossible? It is. Think it can’t be done?” Just Watch Me.
This book was created by the author of the Dexter books, and it shows. Riley is just as ruthless and probably less moral than serial killer Dexter. However, I enjoyed my time inside his head. There is no other character like him in fiction today. But if you must love the “hero” in your thrillers, especially those written in a first-person tense, Just Watch Me is probably not for you. But for anyone looking for a different type of narrator or who enjoys a good heist story, like me, this book is fantastic and compulsively readable. 4.5 stars! I can’t wait to see this made into an Ocean’s Eleven-type movie!
Thanks to Dutton Books, NetGalley, and Edelweiss+ for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
