The art came off the wall, the alarm screamed thief, and Wilson walked away clean. But it turned out that job was an interview for an even bigger heist. A dangerous man wants Wilson to get him something more valuable than a painting. Problem is Wilson only has a week.
Wilson and his crew crosses the border to Buffalo to steal a 200-year-old violin. Four men cross, but four don’t come back. A lot of people are interested in getting their hands on the instrument and none of them are shy about killing to get it.
The job starts like a bad joke — a thief, a conman, a wheel man, and a gangster get in line to cross the border — but the Buffalo job doesn’t end with a punch-line. It ends with blood.
What I liked: I love Wilson and I really shouldn't. I can't believe I'm hooked on a series where the lead is basically a pretty bad person. I guess that's the gift of Mr. Knowles' writing. I would never have thought I would like a book of this type until I read the previous book, Never Play Another Man's Game. I've become invested in Wilson even as I'm appalled by the majority of his actions. It's almost like watching a train wreck, I couldn't help myself.
The synopsis pretty much says all that can be said without spoilers but a big caution here, expect anything when Wilson is involved. Surprises are the norm in this series and this book!!
What I didn't like: n/a
I got an ARC of The Buffalo Job from NetGalley. I was just browsing the titles and found it. That says something. Since I read the last in the series so long ago, I still remembered Mr. Knowles name.
The pricing could be a problem for some. The paperback is $9.88 and Kindle version is`$9.39. At B & N, the paperback is $9.88 and the Nook book is $9.99
If you like action, bloody stories with unredeeming characters, you'll love The Buffalo Job.
Highly recommend. (If possible, read the previous books first!)
