GHOST MAN by Roger Hobbs. Every once in a while a new author comes along that really knocks your socks off, and Roger Hobbs is certainly one of those. His writing is crisp and to the point, and he doesn’t wander off on tangents like some of the current “big” authors in vogue. None of repeated pages about how “Nana baked cookies for the kids and then took them to school” mind-numbing paragraphs. This book is about the ultimate, beneath the radar master heister and how he turns the table on a super conman crime planner, a local gangster and the FBI. Written in first-person, the nameless GHOST MAN describes what and why he makes each move. Scenes vary from Atlantic City to Kuala Lumpur and are described with comforting familiarity. The book is fast-paced, suspenseful, gritty and exciting. Before you pick up yet another of the bi-weekly books written by a famous author and a sidekick read this one. It’s really much better and is a forerunner of what will no doubt be more great reads. I can’t wait for his next one.
