#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A delightfully lighthearted caper . . . [a] fast-moving, entertaining tale.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, impossible to resist.
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Cable’s circle of literary friends, to get close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets.

  • Anticlimactic ending

    By RobertMedic30
    Ending fell flat, bad guy wins, too simple for such an elaborately laid out narrative plot. Much left to be desired
  • Camino Island

    By Grams 1001
    A wonderful read. A departure from is lawyer theme, but great.
  • Solid Book

    By Bamancal
    To me, this was a very solid book. Liked taking a break from court room dramas. I liked most of the characters and enjoyed reading.
  • I love typical Grisham

    By ma2she
    Kinda cruel all of the real crooks got caught. At least someone made it out of the heat
  • Engaging

    By chuckleedee
    The writing is very good. There were times when I felt that I was on that beach...
  • Great author but...

    By AlexisRed2
    Weakest ending imaginable! I have read many Grisham books before but they were completely riveting, this was more beach trash than a law drama. I liked the characters and the plot but the ending just was awful. Four stars for what could be and a nod to a great author!
  • Easy read

    By Corbin018
    Not a bad book at all. Enjoyed reading it. Got a little dry in the middle but overall solid book. Would recommend
  • Don’t bother

    By ...books...
    J.G.. writes for old and insecure white men. Camino Winds is shallow. The characters are cheesy and predictable. The story is one long eye roll.
  • Just Terrible

    By localwally
    Total waste of time.
  • Too wordy

    By 1501lsd
    Don’t read this trash that he probably wrote in one afternoon with a beer in hand. Much too chatty, story really flat and far fetched, didn’t get a little interesting until the last few chapters. Mr Grisham lost it. He’s written manny far better then this one.
