The story is simple, GOOD GUY (although he has a bad side...he is a thief) meets Tess, a hottie on the beach (we later learn she is not what she seems...well you can guess that..no one is perfect). Anyway, life couldn't get any better....you have been offered an opportunity to make quick (although illegal) money and get the girl of your dreams....when, the unexpectant happens (all your friends who are involved in the heist are murdered, as well as the chick you have fallen for) and you are framed for their deaths. Now the story begins, who killed your friends and your lover and why? While Ned Kelly struggles to find out the truth about who is behind his trouble, he meets another woman, Ellie, a FBI agent who specializes in Art to help him discover the truth. As a host of other characters and villians are revealed, you will find yourself rooting that Ned's luck changes soon. I suggest that you give this easy and quick read a chance and enjoy. There are some interesting revelations and plots.
Everything is going right for lifeguard Ned Kelley. He is involved with beautiful Tess, and a million dollars is within touching distance. All he has to do is trigger a few alarms to throw the cops off the scent of the robbery of some world-class art. But when Tess is brutally murdered and the others involved in the robbery are massacred, Ned is the prime suspect. Has he been set up?
i think this is one of james pattersons' best mysterys..kept me intent

A story of a young man coming from an improvished background who gets mixed up with art thieft, murder and a love interest which is unusual...a petty thief and an FBI agent......Drama keeps you on the edge of your seat with each turn of the page.....One of the best Patterson/Gross novels. You will enjoy it.
This book was such a page turner. You think you might have it figured out, but then something happens that you didn't expect. Keep you guessing until the very end. This was the first James Patterson book I have read and now I am hooked.
