"It's just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn't on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes the other two are dead, leaving this coldblooded psychopath to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious bonus in hopes of disappearing completely, as he'll now be as rich as Croesus for life"--

Interesting story, easy to read and comprehend. Not beyond the scope of the possible.

I’ve read the beginnings of many books like this; they peter out fast. Not this one. Just keeps going and going. It’s his second, haven’t read the first. High octane only here. Fortunately this guy doesn’t run out of gas, ever….. . >>> Much like James Elroy who never ever runs out of buzz-word dialog; Hobbs can keep a book going w/o ever including many aspects like plot or character. Amazing! Lots of cracker-jack ‘prizes’ included, too (like lock picking et al et al).

This remarkable followup to 2013's GHOSTMAN proves Roger Hobbs is the new master of the literary thriller. Here, the Ghostman's mentor, Angela, is in trouble when a heist off the coast of Macau goes horribly wrong and she calls Jack in to help. A breakneck chase ensues as several different factions try to get their hands on the prize. Hobbs delivers memorable characters and situations that elevate this above other summer beach reads and he's excellent as keeping the pace up without being exhausting; if you like Lee Child or Harlan Coben, you'll love Hobbs.

A much smoother Jack White than I remember from GHOSTMAN -- but nevertheless, a fast-paced and thrilling high-stakes caper that is enjoyable from start to finish.
