    I don t like a lot of people It s counterproductive Words from Riley Wolfe Heist master extraordinaire Genius with disguises, to the extent that no one really knows what he looks like He loves a challenge, and if it is clearly impossible, so much the better He ll find a way to do it anyway On his trail is Frank Delgado, an FBI special agent with lots of mileage on him He plays things the old school way and he is relentless.This is a thriller that means business Nothing mysticalI don t like a lot of people It s counterproductive Words from Riley Wolfe Heist master extraordinaire Genius with disguises, to the extent that no one really knows what he looks like He loves a challenge, and if it is clearly impossible, so much the better He ll find a way to do it anyway On his trail is Frank Delgado, an FBI special agent with lots of mileage on him He plays things the old school way and he is relentless.This is a thriller that means business Nothing mystical going on here, no psychos hiding in the shadows Just some fascinating forgeries and brilliant thievery Murder isn t out of the question either, especially if you happen to have been born with a silver spoon in your mouth

    This book is the start of a new series by an author whose previous work I have not read It features the master thief Riley Wolfe and too a much lesser extent his beautiful colleague Monique, an expert art forger Riley is bored and looking for a new challenge, so he decides to steal a diamond jewel while the Iranian Crown Jewels are on exhibit in a small, family owned museum in NYC Riley s plan involves an elaborate and improbable long con to get around he super security surrounding the This book is the start of a new series by an author whose previous work I have not read It features the master thief Riley Wolfe and too a much lesser extent his beautiful colleague Monique, an expert art forger Riley is bored and looking for a new challenge, so he decides to steal a diamond jewel while the Iranian Crown Jewels are on exhibit in a small, family owned museum in NYC Riley s plan involves an elaborate and improbable long con to get around he super security surrounding the exhibit view spoiler One of the most improbable aspects was Monique s expert replication of the jewel The idea that someone without years of jewelry making experience could replicate a famous, antique jewel is just ludicrous hide spoiler The plan was intricate and held my interest My problem was that I hated the smug, sociopathic Riley and wanted him to fail That s not really good when you are supposed to be rooting for him The author needs to reread The Talented Mr Ripley and see how a reader can be led to root for the villain It s not enough to tell us that Riley is charming and engaging You need to show it In this book Riley is just a murdering, greedy, deceitful asshole who is perfect at everything he attempts Unfortunately, he is still alive at the end of the book and will make it into book number two 3.5 starsI received a free copy of this book from the publisher

    Being a fan of the Dexter series, I couldn t resist this title I also happen to be a fan of books movies where banks are cleverly robbed or bad people conned This story has it all Riley Wolfe, who was not born with this grand name, makes a living and a very good one by cleverly stealing from rich people, who did not earn their money in an honest way That he has to kill someone in the process every now and then, is something he doesn t see as a problem In Just Watch Me he is not planning Being a fan of the Dexter series, I couldn t resist this title I also happen to be a fan of books movies where banks are cleverly robbed or bad people conned This story has it all Riley Wolfe, who was not born with this grand name, makes a living and a very good one by cleverly stealing from rich people, who did not earn their money in an honest way That he has to kill someone in the process every now and then, is something he doesn t see as a problem In Just Watch Me he is not planning to steal any money he is aiming for something smaller but farvaluable We follow Riley s preparations almost in detail, but we also follow the FBI agent that has his heart and mind set on unmasking Riley for what he is and bring him to court The story is being told from different viewpoints which makes it an entertaining read Riley has a lot in common with Dexter, so do not expect him to be all that likable The story sets off at a good pace but it is a bit slow in the middle and, sadly to say, at the end However, if this is the start of a new series, I would surely like to read the next book.Thanks to Edelweiss and Dutton for this digital review copy

    Well, this definitely isn t Dexter, but it s not bad The biggest struggle for me is that I really don t like Riley, but he is still interesting The psychopathic way that he can change personalities and do literally ANYTHING to get to his end game is both despicable and fascinating.I do love that the story is told from the view of other characters, especially from the law enforcement angle This made for a muchenjoyable experience in the book The ending shows just how jacked up Riley is Well, this definitely isn t Dexter, but it s not bad The biggest struggle for me is that I really don t like Riley, but he is still interesting The psychopathic way that he can change personalities and do literally ANYTHING to get to his end game is both despicable and fascinating.I do love that the story is told from the view of other characters, especially from the law enforcement angle This made for a muchenjoyable experience in the book The ending shows just how jacked up Riley is and his escape was good enough to make me want to continue along with the next book of the series 3.5 stars for me

    , ,, This was such a fast paced read for me I couldn t see what tricks that Riley Wolfe would pull out next He s in a mission to break in and steal the Iranian Crown Jew , ,, This was such a fast paced read for me I couldn t see what tricks that Riley Wolfe would pull out next He s in a mission to break in and steal the Iranian Crown Jewels If anyone gets in his way, Riley just finds a way to move forward, not caring whether he kills them in the process or not While reading I couldn t help but be reminded of Oceans Eleven, and thinking how this would play out in a tv series Excited for the next book Thank you Dutton for this gifted book for review All opinions are my own
