'A dark jewel, polished and precision-cut ... Love and Theft pays tribute to classic capers - and rivals the best of them for verve and ingenuity. A breathless adventure both starry-eyed and cool-blooded, both charming and diabolical.' A. J. Finn, author of the #1 bestseller The Woman in the Window

What price would you put on a second chance?

When Alex Cassidy and Diane Alison meet by chance at a party in Princeton, New Jersey, there are instant sparks. Both are single parents living in wealthy suburbia, independent, highly competent and seemingly settled in their lives. She runs a successful catering business. He's part of a crew that robs banks, casinos and jewellery stores around the world. Neither realises initially that their lives have overlapped before, or that their shared history and burgeoning relationship will come to threaten everything they love. As Alex prepares for one final, daunting job, he discovers that he's not the only one with secrets - and that both of them are playing for the highest stakes imaginable.

Praise for this book

"An absolute knockout. Love and Theft is the tightly plotted, brilliantly entertaining, stay-up-all-night thriller I've been waiting for. Stan Parish delivers on every level." - Cristina Alger

"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

"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

"Love and Theft is the kind of thriller I was afraid people had stopped writing: a novel that's as taut as it is elegant, as ruthless as it is big-hearted. Parish has brought back the ice-cold crime capers of decades past with panache. Try to put it down after ten pages—I dare you." - John Fram

"This terrific page-turner has it all: wonderful characters, frenetic pace, blood-curdling tension, cinematic action, and hugely satisfying twists. Highly recommended." - Chris Pavone

"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
