The summary on this book said that it was a prequel about Joey’s exploits before Mona Lisa’s Secret. It does take place before the storyline of that book, but Joey is just one of many characters, and certainly not the main one.

This is a story about a bank robbery orchestrated by Joey’s father and brother, and its aftermath. The first half of the book was a little slow in developing. The second half was riveting, and I couldn’t put it down. Be prepared for some twists and turns on the way to a su

Great read

I read this book after reading the other 2 books in the series, not knowing it existed. However it made no difference. If you read this before or after you will greatly enjoy the read. This is the team of Joeys' beginnings. His brutal father and how he escaped being a criminal. It's a tale of 2 young college age boys from 2 different backgrounds who become entwined I a thriller you don't want to miss.

I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. I wavered between giving this a 2 star and a 3 star rating. Ultimately went with a three because it kept me wanting to read to the end. What can I say, I like a good heist and a long con. The main problem I had was that the author tended to over explain things, to state the obvious. It made the reading a bit thick at times.

One of the best books I've read in a long time. Full of action and twists & turns that leave you wondering who are the bad guys or is everybody a bad guy? This book was well thought out especially with how it ended. I stayed up way too late reading because I couldn't put it down!

Crime thriller

I thought that the story was okay. There was nothing original or overly thrilling about it. The characters were what you would have expected. Not a bad read but not a great one.

A very intensive read!

This book absolutely delivers -- suspense x 10! At first, I wondered if I would enjoy this book. As the intensity increased, I was glad I had continued! As a suspense/murder/intrigue reader, and I've read many, this story and it's characters and scenes were written quite well and believably carried out! I ran into so many twists and hairpin turns, it took a bit of thinking to keep the characters straight! Great read!
