Publisher's Summary

In this gripping thriller, Claire Keesey, the branch manager for a Boston bank, is taken hostage during a robbery. She is released, but Doug MacRay, the brains behind the tough, tight-knit crew of thieves, can't get her out of his mind. Tracking her down without his mask and gun, Doug introduces himself, and their mutual attraction is undeniable - as are the risks of a relationship. Doug imagines a life away from bank robberies and Charlestown.
But before that can happen, the crew learns that there may be a way to rob Boston's venerable baseball stadium, Fenway Park. It's a magnificently dangerous and utterly irresistible opportunity - yet for Doug, pursuing his former hostage may be the most dangerous act of all....

Made for movie

Yes it is a movie calked the town snd i haven't seen it. However the book is written in a hollywood style and the narration gives it that elliott ness feel. All those things are good and i am becoming a chuck fan.
Like any good book it builds to an exciting conclusion but at the same time there are numerous ways it could have gone, so unlike many books it avoids the predictability. As a reader watching people make bad decisions adds a key element to story.
If you love a good heist with a little humanity slipped I think you will enjoy this book.
