Book Review: Just Watch Me

A masterful thief plots an impossible crime—stealing the Iranian Crown Jewels.
 
From the author of the wildly successful Dexter series comes a new, mesmerizing bad guy we can root for: Riley Wolfe. He’s a master thief, expert at disguise, and not averse to violence when it’s needed. It’s no accident, though, that Riley targets the wealthiest 0.1 percent and is willing to kill them when they’re in his way: he despises the degenerate and immoral rich and loves stealing their undeserved and unearned valuables.
 
In this series launch, Riley aims for an extraordinary target in a heist that will make history. Riley will try to steal the Crown Jewels of Iran. Yes, these jewels are worth billions, but the true attraction for grabbing them comes down to one simple fact: it can’t be done. Stealing these jewels is absolutely impossible. The collection is guarded by space-age electronics and two teams of heavily armed mercenaries. No one could even think of getting past the airtight security and hope to get away alive, let alone with even a single diamond from the Imperial Collection.
 
No one but Riley Wolfe. He’s always liked a challenge.
 
But this challenge may be more than even he can handle. Aside from the impenetrable security, Riley is also pursued by a brilliant and relentless cop who is barely a step behind him.
 
With the aid of his sometime ally, a beautiful woman who is a master art forger, Riley Wolfe goes for the prize that will either make him a legend—or, more likely, leave him dead.

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

When I had requested this book, I had no idea the author of Dexter wrote this..but about 40 pages in it just felt super familiar. I knew I had read something by this author before. After searching the authors name, I was so excited! I FLEW thought this novel in a few hours. I could not put it down at all. It was just SOOOOOOOOO GOOD. 

I don’t need to dive too much into writing style because if you have seen Dexter then you know this is absolute gold. The characters were flawed flawlessly. I cannot wait for the rest of this series. I cannot wait to see the rest of Riley’s journey. I love it so much. 

Riley is just as ruthless as Dexter. I feel this type of story and character aren’t really seen in stories today. We need more Ruthless Riley’s!!!

Thank you so much to Jeff Lindsay, Penguin Group: Dutton, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
