#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * "A delightfully lighthearted caper . . . [a] fast-moving, entertaining tale."-- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a vault deep below Princeton University's Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, impossible to resist. Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures. Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer's block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Cable's circle of literary friends, to get close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets. But soon Mercer learns far too much, and there's trouble in paradise--as only John Grisham can deliver it. Praise for Camino Island "A happy lark [that] provides the pleasure of a leisurely jaunt periodically jolted into high gear, just for the fun and speed of it." -- The New York Times Book Review "Sheer catnip . . . [Grisham] reveals an amiable, sardonic edge here that makes Camino Island a most agreeable summer destination." -- USA Today "Fans will thrill with the classic chase and satisfying ending; and book lovers will wallow in ecstasy." -- The Florida Times-Union
