is planning another heist I won t go into to any detail, as I don t want to spoil the book.I loved the dialogue in this book, it made me smile I found the relationships interesting, as the characters have been thrust together, and don t necessarily like each other It is a somewhat complex plot, but easy enough to follow It has clearly been written with the intention of transition to screen, which I think it would do well I found the plot fairly predictable, and perhaps slightly dated I know it s set in the 80s, but it would still be possible to create a original plot line Overall this was an ok read for me, sorry Lynda not one of my favourites.Thank you to Netgalley, and Lynda for this ARC in exchange for an honest review flag Like see review Jan 25, 2019 Andrew marked it as to read
