Camino Island by John Grisham
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Well I didn't totally hate it, but I didn't really care for it either. BORING is the word that comes to mind.
The crime was hard to care about F. Scott Fitzgerald's handwritten manuscripts that hardly anyone gets to see were stolen from Princeton. Two of the thieves are captured right away, but when they don't check in the other two realize something is wrong. Seeing Trey as a weak link Denny kills him and makes off with the manuscripts.
Aspiring writer loaded down with student loan debt, Mercer agrees to work with a private insurance company to recover the manuscripts that they suspect a bookstore owner (Bruce) on Camino Island has in his possession.
Bruce outwits the FBI and the private investigators and smuggles the manuscripts under their noises to France where a lawyer brokers a deal with Princeton to return them for a princely sum.
