FOX AND HOUND by Amber Leigh Williams

Jewel thief, Todd Orso has penetrated the Louvre’s security systems and is less than a hair’s breath away from the Hortensia diamond when the gem is stolen from beneath his fingertips. He spends the next three years in prison thinking of the green-eyed thief who stole his diamond. In FOX AND HOUND by Amber Leigh Williams, museum thieves put the thrill of ‘the game’ on hold while they seek revenge against a master thief who played them.

Miss Williams does a wonderfully job of taking the reader into the world of high-risk jewel thieves Celestia Armstrong and Todd Orso. Her style of story telling is brisk and clean, giving enough details to place you in the scene without bogging down with wordiness or excessive description. While head hopping was present throughout the book, it wasn’t jarring. The play-by-play scenes did tell the action more than show but not so much that it interfered with the story.

I look forward to reading more from this author.
