From the author of The Strain comes a tense, psychologically gripping, Hammet award-winning thriller.

Four masked men--thieves, rivals, and friends from the tough streets of Charlestown--take on a Boston bank at gunpoint. Holding bank manager Claire Keesey hostage and cleaning out the vault were simple. But career criminal Doug MacRay didn't plan on one thing: falling hard for Claire. When he tracks her down without his mask and gun, their mutual attraction is undeniable. With a tenacious FBI agent following his every move, he imagines a life away from his gritty, dangerous work--a life centered around Claire. But before that can happen, Doug and his crew learn that there may be a way to rob Boston's venerable baseball stadium, Fenway Park. Risky yet utterly irresistible, it would be the perfect heist to end his criminal career and begin a new life. But, as it turns out, pursuing Claire may be the most dangerous act of all.

Racing to an explosive climax, Prince of Thieves is a brash tale of robbery in all its forms--and an unforgettable odyssey of crime, love, ambition, and dreams.

Price of Thieves was a fast paced psychological thriller set in old Boston/ Charlestown with surprisingly good insight into the lifestyle of a young bank robber and his crew. Highly recommended!

Pretty good for a Ben Afflek flick. But do so many have to die?
