I always look forward to a new Wyatt thriller and this one didn't disappoint in any way. Lots of complicated characters and twists and very contemporary. After reading a Wyatt thriller I made it my mission to track down all the others in the series as I find him such a well written and intriguing character. Read this one and you will also want to meet him again.
Wyatt: Master Thief, pulls off daring, well planned heists, then disappears into the night with no trace. He's been doing small jobs, ticking over, until something much bigger comes his way... Wyatt has just had a tip from a prison insider about the mastermind of a Ponzi scheme, who is being closely looked at by the law. The tipoff says the crook has ferreted away over a million dollars and is about to skip the country on a luxury yacht. Wyatt decides that this is one payoff he needs to be in on, and so sets about stealing from a thief. As the action moves from Sydney to Newcastle we're along for the ride as Wyatt goes about his surveillance and planning for the robbery. Yet, he's not the only one after the loot, and he's got a dogged policeman on his tail! I found Kill Shot to be a wonderful, engrossing thriller, quick to get through and unputdownable. None of the characters are particularly likeable, yet this only makes the novel more believable. A first rate read. My thanks to Text Publishing for a copy to read and review. The opinions are entirely my own.
More complex than the previous Wyatt books and he ends up with lots of loot! Wyatt has been leading his now normal peripatetic life following tips from Kramer, in gaol but still sniffing out jobs for 20%, Lazar is after them both; the latest job is wresting an escape fund from Tremayne and different sets of cops are after them all. Written in the usual spare but meticulous style the caper gradually unfolds with a higher than usual body count and a probably “happy” ending. Fingers crossed there will be another book because it really needs a sequel.
