Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts introduces an unforgettable thief in an unputdownable new novel…

Greed. Desire. Obsession. Revenge . . . It’s all in a night’s work. 

Harry Booth started stealing at nine to keep a roof over his ailing mother’s head, slipping into luxurious, empty homes at night to find items he could trade for precious cash. When his mother finally succumbed to cancer, he left Chicago—but kept up his nightwork, developing into a master thief with a code of honor and an expertise in not attracting attention—or getting attached. 

Until he meets Miranda Emerson, and the powerful bond between them upends all his rules. But along the way, Booth has made some dangerous associations, including the ruthless Carter LaPorte, who sees Booth as a tool he controls for his own profit. Knowing LaPorte will leverage any personal connection, Booth abandons Miranda for her own safety—cruelly, with no explanation—and disappears. 

But the bond between Miranda and Booth is too strong, pulling them inexorably back together. Now Booth must face LaPorte, to truly free himself and Miranda once and for all.

Beginning does not foretell the ending

I am a long time Nora Roberts fan so I was disappointed in this book at the beginning. It was slow to take off and I considered abandoning it about one third of the way through. But I hung in and I am glad that I did. The book picked up speed, the characters took off, and the plot thickened. By the conclusion of the novel I was completely invested. I honestly believe the book would be improved with a condensed explanation of the antagonist childhood. But if you can get through first segment of the book the remainder makes it worth while.

Did anyone else keep thinking about Roarke?

Overall this novel was very good and entertaining. I just kept thinking that Booth's story could be Roarke from her In Death series. A lot of elements of Booth and Roarke childhood and career in B&E are the same. it was an enjoyable read so I do recommend it

The main character is a liar and thief.. How can this be looked up to?

Blah blah blah, this book offends me, he is a thief to help his mother, I can understand that. However, he continues to lie and steal through life. I find him pathetic. I can’t even remember his real name.

Surprisingly Good!!!

Nightwork was a great palate cleansing read. It was intriguing just enough to keep the mystery and suspense going. Harry, AKA Booth, AKA Silas, AKA Sebastian was an interesting and multilayered character. I loved his backstory and his transformative journey on becoming a thief. Not just a thief but, a thief with morals who lives by a strict set of rules. Harry’s ability to get in and get out with expensive and rare jewels without getting caught puts him on Carter LaPorte’s radar. LaPorte wants to own Harry but, Harry’s not down with the subterfuge. Therein begins a 13-year cat and mouse game between the two. Nightwork was a great read. Harry was such a complex character but, I really enjoyed getting to know him and watching him navigate his life through multiple personas. I loved reading about the different types of food and the culture of New Orleans. This book was classic Nora Roberts so, you can’t go wrong. A huge thank you to the author and St. Martin’s Press for the opportunity to read Nightwork ahead of its release date.

Well done! Solid, complex, entertaining!

This is like the older Nora Roberts books, a solid, well written, densely plotted, and interesting story. It is about adults who have entered into rather fascinating lifestyles. There is family but not too much. Friends. Adventure. Fast paced. Fun to read. Kept my interest. Zero eye rolling over thin plots or too slick solutions. I've read every Nora Roberts book except the Harlequins, and I quit reading all the series as the plots never changed, ie sets of 3 or 4 young women and men of different backgrounds but becoming insta friends/romance, meeting up in a small town for an adventure and romance and maybe some obscure mission. So....been there. This is vintage Nora, back to a full length and genuinely interesting story, certainly with a happy ending but not necessarily what I'd call "light reading". Good narration. Worth a credit. I've also read all the JD Robb books.

Fantastic narration!

An absolutely wonderful performance that made the story even better. I loved Will Damron's character voices, tone, pacing, inflection...he gave a terrific performance and makes this an easy recommendation.

Nora Roberts Does It Again

I wasn’t sure I was going to really get into this book by the description, I was wrong.
Strong and colorful characters, excellent story, full of humor and suspense. Well worth the credit.

Good story

It took me awhile to get into the story mostly because the narrator doesn't do the female voices well at all. It was so bad that I almost stopped listening, but I am glad I stuck with it as the story ended up being good. In the future I think this narrator should stick to strictly doing male voices which he’s good at and leave the female voices to an actual woman.

Too much sex

I enjoyed this story...it was a really refreshing take on a suspenseful and exciting book, with a man narrator, but the sex scenes completely annoyed me. They weren't necessary at all. I have 6 children and have had plenty of sex in my life but the ridiculousness of these scenes got the whole story derailed for me. No more Nora Roberts for me.
Why no notice about this in the description of the story?
