Camino Island by John Grisham
Paperback, Book. English. Thriller. Suspense fiction. Published London: Hodder, 2018

The most daring and devastating heist in literary history targets the five manuscripts of F. Scott Fitzgerald's only novels. After an initial flurry of arrests, both they and the ruthless gang of thieves who took them have vanished without trace. Dealing in stolen books is a dark business, and few are initiated to its arts - which puts Bruce Kable right on the FBI's Rare Asset Recovery Unit's watchlist. A struggling writer burdened by debts, Mercer Mann spent summers on Florida's idyllic Camino Island as a kid, in her grandmother's beach cottage. Now she is being made an offer she can't refuse: to return to the peace of the island, to write her novel - and get close to a certain infamous bookseller and his interesting collection of manuscripts.

Standing outside the FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., Dabney shoots school teacher Anne Berkshire in cold blood before turning the gun on himself. One of the many witnesses is Amos Decker; a man who forgets nothing and sees what most miss.
