Description

"Sexy, emotional, funny . . . Dimon gives it all to her readers." —New York Times Bestselling Author Jill Shalvis

They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, and Harrison Tate is proof. Once a professional burglar, he now makes a lawful living tracking down stolen art. No one needs to know about his secret sideline, "liberating" artifacts acquired through underhanded methods. At least until one of those jobs sees him walking in on a murder.

Gabrielle Wright has long been estranged from her wealthy family, but she didn't kill her sister. Trouble is, the only person who can prove it is the sexy, elusive criminal who shouldn't have been at the island estate on that terrible night. She's not expecting honor among thieves—or for their mutual attraction to spark into an intense inferno of desire.

Under the guise of evaluating her family's art, Harris comes back to the estate hoping to clear Gabby's name. But returning to the scene of the crime has never been riskier, with their hearts and lives on the line.

        Dimon smoothly integrates suspense and romance in her tense third Games People Play contemporary (after The Enforcer). When Harrison Tate, a Robin Hood who steals wrongfully acquired artworks in order to return them, stumbles upon the bloodied body of a woman in the middle of an isolated mansion, he hastily removes his traces from the crime scene and flees, leaving the victim’s sister to top the suspect list. Gabby Wright has been rightly accused of a lot of things—including being spoiled, behaving selfishly, and orchestrating her own kidnapping 10 years earlier to get to her parents’ money—but she’s not a killer. When her only surviving family member, her uncle Stephen, crusades to hold Gabby responsible for the murder, Harris has no choice but to return to Tabitha Island to unmask the real murderer and clear her name. He teams up with his buddy Damon to lead a secret investigation, taking on an assumed name. Harris opens up to Gabby in order to get her to do the same, and what starts off as crime research and intense physical attraction evolves into profound trust, deep respect, and mutual love—until she learns the details of his first trip to the island. Riveting action, a twisty plot, and strong character development make Dimon’s fast-paced romance a winner.

        Convinced that Harrison Tate has been hired to prove she killed her sister, heiress Gabrielle Wright can't understand why she's so drawn to him or why he seems sincere when he says he believes she's innocent.Gabrielle's problematic relationship with her parents deteriorated even more after she was kidnapped as a college student and rumors spread she'd planned it. Orphaned as a young adult, she and her younger sister, Tabitha, are trying to heal some old wounds when Tabitha is murdered on the family's private island. While there's no evidence she had anything to do with the crime, her Uncle Stephen is convinced she's guilty. Wanting to solve the mystery and settle the estate--cutting Gabby out of her inheritance--he hires an investigator and an appraiser. Gabby doesn't want to trust the men, but she's drawn to art expert Harrison Tate, who claims to believe in her innocence when no one else does. What she doesn't know is that, due to a side job of returning stolen art to rightful owners, Harris was there the night Tabitha was murdered, so he knows Gabby is innocent. He's kept a watchful eye on her, determined to keep her from being arrested, so once Stephen moves against her, he's driven to clear her name. But danger escalates as the couple get closer to each other and to the truth, since the murderer is close by and will do anything to keep it buried. Dimon (The Negotiator, 2017, etc.) has become a go-to author for romantic suspense, with fresh plots, out-of-the-box characters, and romance to root for. This title, the most recent in her Games People Play series, hits the mark.Imaginative, emotional, action-packed, and artfully crafted.
