Mark Martel is a very successful jewel thief. He is engaged to a beautiful woman, lives in a nice upscale home, and seems to have everything he wants in life. However, his perfect world crashes after delivering a $200,000 painting to a buyer, Don Genero. His client's son tries to kill Mark and his girlfriend. The assailant carries out his assault, believing that Mark is dead in the river. Mark survives, but loses an eye. He turns state's evidence and enters the witness protection program as Mark Marre, vintner extraordinaire. Don Genero believes that Mark killed his son and puts a $500,000 contract on him. Meanwhile, a series of jewel thefts occur that has Mark's signature modus operand all over them. Insurance worker Lisa Cole tracks down Mark, believing he committed the crimes. He offers her proof he is innocent, but now the Don and his henchmen are closing in on Mark, ready to even the score. This novel is a pulse-pounding thriller that keeps the audience interested from the first page to the last due to the protagonist. Mark is a likable crook who overcomes his adversary to make a new comfortable life for himself. Although his own actions led to his present troubles, readers will feel sympathy towards Mark. The plot is nicely executed especially since all indications are that the thugs will triumph. The creative ending will leave the audience wanting the hero to make future appearances. Harriet Klausner
