“Caravan of Thieves busts right out of the chute and never stops bucking. It’s a rocket ride and a terrific debut that will leave the reader shaken and gasping for air.” –C. J. Box, author of Force of Nature and Back of Beyond
“A stylish, gritty, breakneck tale, Caravan of Thieves had me guessing the whole way. David Rich’s terse, hardboiled prose keeps the story moving faster than a wanted criminal. And the ending is stunner! Highly recommended!”
–Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Betrayal
About The Book
What do you get when you put a Hollywoodscreen writer behind a spectacular, fast paced thriller?
David Rich’s debut novel CARAVAN OF THIEVES is a testament to his skills as a screen writer. With a style entirely his own, Rich deftly captures the breakneck pacing of a heist movie and the sharp, witty dialogue of a courtroom drama. Complete with high speed pursuits, federal investigations and a complex father-son relationship, CARAVAN OF THIEVES is a tale that constantly moves, calling into question the ubiquitous elements of identity and truth.
Growing up, the only thing Rollie Waters ever learned from his father was how to lie, cheat and steal, “and then lie, lie, lie some more.” But instead of following in his father’s con-artist footsteps, Rollie decides to put these skills to better use – as the perfect undercover Marine Corps officer. Only comfortable when inhabiting a false identity, the danger of undercover work makes use of Rollie’s talents and keeps him out of trouble. Most of the time.
When he is abruptly pulled from his latest assignment inAfghanistanand thrown into the brig, Rollie is only partly surprised to hear the name Dan Waters, his elusive father. Suddenly thrown into a mission unlike any other, Rollie must retrace the frail tendrils of truth scattered among his childhood in order to find his father and the $25 million dollars of recently missing government money the feds suspect he stole. Equipped with the tactics and tricks his father taught him, Rollie must stay two steps ahead of his expanding, allegiance-shifting group of enemies. From the deserts inArizonato the deserts in theMiddle East, Rollie cannot escape his father’s influence—a burden which just might save his life.
Drawing from his experience writing for the silver screen, David Rich brings a unique style to his debut novel. A cross between Ocean’s Eleven and A Few Good Men, CARAVAN OF THIEVES is an irresistible tale with a compelling father-son story, and the swift excitement of a heist movie. David Rich’s fresh voice is one that thriller lovers won’t soon forget.
