I enjoyed several of Thomas Harris‘s previous novels, and I was eager to pick up his newest work. Two rival criminal gangs are trying to get at a treasure locked underneath an abandoned mansion. I am not a big fan of heist stories, but the central character of Cari, the house-sitter, redeemed this book for me. The criminals, even the most monstrous of them, were not very interesting. Cari has a fascinating backstory and a compelling personality.
