Cary doesn’t trust Isaac. Isaac definitely doesn’t trust Cary. But when a third player enters the scene who seems to have it in for both of them — their only choice is to stick together.
Corbin Ford aka The Nightwatchman has been in the cat-burgling business for years. His father was. His grandfather was. His mother is one of the best in the game.
He steals art, he steals jewels, he’s addicted to the game.
When he meets Luke Eldridge, he falls fast and hard and one after another, his walls start to crumble.
But Luke isn’t the beautiful man with the boring bank job that he pretended to be. One night, he confesses to Corbin that his real job, the one he’d hid for months, is with Interpol. And the case he’s embroiled in?
Finding the Nightwatchman.
Jack Hunter is always on a quest for lost art, ancient manuscripts, and anything else that’ll romance the millions of viewers who watch his show each week. He hasn’t always hit pay dirt in his searches though, and a string of empty global treasure hunts has left his show on the brink of cancellation. Jack needs a white whale, a holy grail, nothing less than a miracle to revive his career.
Aloysius “Alo” Green likes his ivory towers. He’s content to study from the comfort of a university library and publish papers nobody other than academics will ever read. But coded letters pointing to hidden Nazi treasure fall into his hands, and while colleagues warn him to keep them to himself, Alo can’t stop obsessing. He makes a huge mistake and publishes a paper on his find, ignoring the danger doing so will bring.
Jack is sure he’s struck gold when his assistant brings Alo’s paper to him. Alo wants nothing to do with Jack or his televised treasure hunt. But after Alo is threatened, it appears Jack is his best bet to silence those who seek to use him to find the vast wealth first.
By trusting Jack, Alo might’ve saved himself… or made his worst decision yet
