Publisher's Summary

"A breathless adventure both starry-eyed and cool-blooded, both charming and diabolical." (A.J. Finn, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Woman in the Window)

"Crackling with full-throttle tension.... An electrifying novel." (Robert Crais, author of the best-selling Elvis Cole novels)

An epic Vegas heist. A high-octane international romance. A charismatic thief forced to orchestrate one final, treacherous job to save his family. 

When Alex Cassidy and Diane Alison meet at a party in Princeton, New Jersey, the chemistry between them is instant and undeniable. She's a single mother, local fixture, and owner of a successful catering company. He's a single father and weekend homeowner - and leader of an armed-robbery crew that just pulled off a record-breaking precision jewel heist in Las Vegas. Neither one realizes that their lives have overlapped before and that the shared history they uncover will threaten everyone they love. 

Swept up in their burgeoning relationship, Diane joins Alex at his beach house in Tulum, where Alex decides to leave his life of crime behind. It begins as a postcard-perfect weekend until an entanglement with a powerful cartel forces Alex to mastermind one final and unthinkably dangerous job. What ensues is an explosive, adrenaline-soaked journey through the moneyed landscapes of Mexico and Europe, where ghosts from the past collide with unexpected perils in the present. As Alex and Diane fight for their lives, they discover that they're not the only ones with secrets - and that those closest to us pose the greatest danger of all. 

Propulsive, deeply suspenseful, and layered with mesmerizing twists, Love and Theft is a sophisticated thriller about the illusion of control and the high price of past transgressions.

Critic Reviews

"Well now! I just read the next great American crime novelist. Love and Theft is a smart, electric, totally original tale that I absolutely could not put down. To put it simply, this is a fast, fantastic, entirely satisfying read. Fans of Elmore Leonard rejoice. Stan Parish has arrived!" (Christopher Reich, New York Times best-selling author of the Simon Riske novels)

"Love and Theft is the caper thriller we’ve all been waiting for - lean, sophisticated, ice-cold, endlessly surprising. What took it so long to get here?" (Lincoln Child, number one New York Times best-selling author)

“Tight, beautifully written, and crackling with full-throttle tension, Love and Theft knocked me out. An electrifying novel. Stan Parish has the stuff. For real.” (Robert Crais, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Excellent

I read and listen to a lot of books but review very few. This book was a complete surprise. Tight, well-paced and conceived, I loved the story. A heist tale is easy, making it this good is near impossible.

Moral ambiguity with a sort of happy ending

It's a curiously absorbing story with a highly unlikely premise and more unlikely conclusion. Still, worth a listen. Solid neo- noir.
