Publisher's Summary

From the celebrated, New York Times bestselling author comes a commercial thriller of an MIT grad student who unwittingly uncovers the hidden connection between the Gardner Museum heist and the most fascinating secret in American history.

THE CARD SHARK: Hailey Gordon is looking to make some fast cash to help pay her tuition when she’s caught counting cards at the Encore casino in Boston. She grabs her winnings and makes her escape. With guards closing in, she dives into an unlocked room to hide . . . only to find a dead body.

THE EX-CON: Recently released from prison, Nick Patterson hasn’t felt hope in a long time, but the job he “inherited” in prison promises to change that. He enters hotel room 633 to find that the person he was supposed to meet has been murdered. Next to the corpse stands a terrified young woman—Hailey Gordon.

THE PROFESSOR: American history professor Adrian Jensen learns of the death of his professional nemesis, Charles Walker, the night after he received Walker’s latest research. Skeptical at first, Adrian nearly deletes the file. But when one small, new detail catches his eye, he makes it his mission to uncover what could be one of the biggest secrets of the Revolutionary War.

All three strangers find themselves on the cusp of an incredible discovery—one that someone is willing to kill to keep buried.

Great idea, mediocre approach

I saw this book on a recent trip to Paul Revere’s house. I love the idea of mixing our nation’s history with long lost treasures and intrigues. It’s been done very well before. I picked it up immediately when I saw it.

Throughout the story, an obscene amount of ex machina solutions presented themselves. Things were always just too convenient. Entertaining enough, but very difficult to see past the author’s forced coincidences used to progress the story. And I know this is purely a personal preference, but I was not a fan of the narrator. Too unnecessarily emotive and bouncy. I don’t like false excitement about something as mundane as “and then they walked around the corner.” Emotion in narration is a good tool, but it’s this guy was too upbeat and almost juvenile sounding for a suspense novel. At least for me.

The plot was interesting. I am curious about where the story line will go with the sequel, but not sure I am curious enough to spend money to find out.

Not very good

Very disappointing. It had such an intriguing start but honestly failed to capture much excitement or cohesion as it moved forward. Bummed.

Save your credit

I loved Bitcoin Billionaires so much that I bought this title without hesitation. This book was totally disappointing & I kept waiting to get hooked. Never happened.

Open ending

Open ending where is the sequel? We enjoyed it but it felt flat at the end.
