“Camino Island”: the new book by John Grisham, the best thriller writer alive.

Camino Island és alhora una lectura de platja i una novel·la negre per als amants del genero. Comença amb un atrac literari i acabant amb un duel entre una dona i un terrible criminal. L’atrac més important de la història de la literatura s’està preparant cap a la Universitat de Princeton. On es guarden cinc manuscrits de F Scott Fitzgerald, avaluats en 25 milions de dòlars…

 

Someone is about to make a killing

 

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars.

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.

Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block. She 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 Cable’s circle of literary friends. Ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets.

But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it
