About the Book
The acclaimed author of the Silas Cade Thrillers introduces Finn, a thief who’s about to learn that when you steal big, there’s always a downside.
In an age of cybercrime, Finn is the last hardhat. He’s a professional thief with a unique specialty: He only steals big things—autoracks, factory lines, machinery. You might call what he does “heavy lifting.” And he’s no stranger to the downside of his chosen profession; he’s done seven years’ hard time to prove it.
Fresh out of prison and flat broke, Finn has a line on his biggest job ever. A beautiful woman with her own agenda has put him back in touch with a shady Wall Street billionaire. The job? Breaking into a private commodities vault and hauling out fifty million dollars worth of the precious metal rhodium. It’s big, it’s heavy, and it’ll pull a lot of exposure. In other words, it’s right up Finn’s alley.
The vault is located underground in a high-security rail yard in New Jersey. The plan? Tunnel in. But there’s only one group that can get it done, and Finn will have to call in the crackerjack team that landed him in prison in the first place: Asher, a cranky oilfield driller; Corman, a bearlike railway man; and Jake, a charismatic machinery expert—joined by Nicola, a female hacker who alternates between white and black hats.
Cracking the most heavily guarded private vault in North America? No problem. Hauling fifty million dollars in precious metal out past guards, dozens of policemen, and an armored SWAT battalion? Even easier. But navigating the betrayals of double-crossing partners, the machinations of a hedge-fund billionaire gone bad, and the ambiguous proposals of a woman with her own agenda? That’s when things get twisty. This is the heist that will truly test Finn’s mettle, and he’ll need nerves of steel just to get out alive. But he’s sure of one thing: This time, there’s got to be an upside.
From the author of Clawback—hailed by Library Journal as “a fast-moving thriller leavened by wit” and starring an unforgettable blue-collar antihero—The Downside hurtles along at a breakneck speed.
