But he has taken a secret with him to his death - a secret that reveals itself during his autopsy and reawakens dark memories. Jennifer Browne, a young and ambitious FBI agent, is assigned to the case. This is her last chance to kick start a career that has stalled after one fatal error of judgment three years before. Her investigation uncovers a daring robbery from Fort Knox, and Tom Kirk, the world's greatest art thief, is the prime suspect. Tom, caught between his desire to get out of the game and his partner's insistence that he complete one last job for the criminal mastermind Cassius, faces a thrilling race against time to clear his name. It's a race that takes him from London to Paris, Amsterdam to Istanbul in a search for the real thieves and the legendary Double Eagle.

Definition of Thriller

This book is exciting, pacy, driven and intensely thrilling. Its a genuinely good heist story with a crackling dynamic between dashing ex thief and vibrant FBI agent. I love the spark and tension between these two and all the other brillant myriad of characters. Its just plain fun to listen to when these days thriller writers tend to lose their way by being over complicated, over dramatic, patronizing, psychological cliche drivel which no one really enjoys. What people want is a good story and this is it!
