If you are a fan of heist’s novels, this is for you!

Also, fun fact! This author is actually the author that wrote Dexter! Which I absolutely adore!! So I just had to read this book!

Another bonus, this is a series!! Just Watch Me is Book #1 of the Riley Wolfe series, and Book #2 Fool Me Twice up is already out! I’ll need to pick it up ASAP.

Riley is a con artist and a thief; if you know me, you know how much I love heists, thieves and con artists storylines!! After mystery novels, they are my favorites! This book was full of action, scheming, and surprises!

I also really loved Riley’s character and how he interacts with people, plans his numerous schemes, uses disguises, etc. Just keep in mind it’s not the usual thriller /mystery, I would say it’s more adventure/suspense/fiction.

I could totally see this being made into a series or movie! Great plot, excellent writing, many surprises! Highly recommend.

Thank you to PENGUIN GROUP Dutton for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


A masterful thief plots an impossible crime—stealing the Iranian Crown Jewels.

From the author of the wildly successful Dexter series comes a new, mesmerizing bad guy we can root for: Riley Wolfe. He’s a master thief, expert at disguise, and not averse to violence when it’s needed. It’s no accident, though, that Riley targets the wealthiest 0.1 percent and is willing to kill them when they’re in his way: he despises the degenerate and immoral rich and loves stealing their undeserved and unearned valuables.

In this series launch, Riley aims for an extraordinary target in a heist that will make history. Riley will try to steal the Crown Jewels of Iran. Yes, these jewels are worth billions, but the true attraction for grabbing them comes down to one simple fact: it can’t be done. Stealing these jewels is absolutely impossible. The collection is guarded by space-age electronics and two teams of heavily armed mercenaries. No one could even think of getting past the airtight security and hope to get away alive, let alone with even a single diamond from the Imperial Collection.

No one but Riley Wolfe. He’s always liked a challenge.

But this challenge may be more than even he can handle. Aside from the impenetrable security, Riley is also pursued by a brilliant and relentless cop who is barely a step behind him.

With the aid of his sometime ally, a beautiful woman who is a master art forger, Riley Wolfe goes for the prize that will either make him a legend—or, more likely, leave him dead.
