"Adrift in a sleepy coastal Massachusetts town, a man who ferries fugitives by day gets twisted up in a plot to pilfer diamonds in this Casablanca-infused heist novel. Jack might be a polished, Harvard-educated lawyer on paper, but everyone in the down-at-the-heels, if picturesque, village of Onset, Massachusetts, knows his real job: moving people on the run from powerful enemies. The family business-co-managed with his father, a retired spy-is smooth sailing, as they fill up Onset's holiday homes during the town's long, drowsy off-season and help clients shed their identities in preparation for fresh starts. But when Elena, Jack's former flame-a dedicated hustler who's no stranger to the fugitive life-makes an unexpected return to town, her arrival upends Jack's routine existence. Elena, after all, doesn't go anywhere without a scheme in mind, and it isn't long before Jack finds himself enmeshed in her latest project: intercepting millions of dollars' worth of raw diamonds before they're shipped overseas. Infusing a fast-paced plot with sharp wit and stylish prose, CrimeReads editor-in-chief Dwyer Murphy serves up an irresistible page-turner as full of heart as it is of drama"--… (més)

Plenty of atmosphere in The Stolen Coast - creeping danger and romantic regret - all in a grimy seaside town in Massachusetts. Complicated characters - con artists, thieves and those in hiding. But not much plot or perhaps just too circuitous to for me follow. ( )

It's one of those books you're not really sure what you read and whether you liked it or not. The writing is beautiful, it's very atmospheric. It's very particular about the place it's set in. I didn't know much about Onset, Massachusetts, the large Cape Verdean population there and the festival that takes place there in August. It also talks about the cranberry industry there and Cape Cod riches. I had the feeling that story took a backseat to the scenery and so did its protagonist. It's told from the point of view of Jack, who felt very wishy-washy. He is just going with the flow. He doesn't seem to want to know or understand anything or finally take that steering wheel of his life, only dreaming about it. He is still working for his retired ex-spy dad, who has Parkinson's disease but still manages to know everything about his moves. I really didn't understand how he went to Harvard or how he stayed in that business of moving fugitives for so long.
There are definitely some Great Gatsby vibes. ( )

Just never connected to the characters & most of the story didn’t seem to matter. A heist book where the heist didn’t seem to be the main point . ( )
