There's already a five-star review up on Amazon, from one E. Simmons:
The novel is another great example of the cons going back from screen to page. Many of the familiar guest stars on the show appear (I won't list them all as don't want to ruin it but will tell you DON'T read the Acknowledgements at the beginning as that will spoil it for you). The description gives you Sterling so I can mention him... right in character. You can FEEL the tension in the air when Sterling arrives and throws the proverbial wrench into the works. All our characters get to shine in their areas of expertise, Nate solving the puzzles and plans and getting too wrapped up personally, Hardison hacking a little and ranting/whining, Parker breaking and entering as well as stealing (and gaining a new friend! LOL), Sophie grifting a few times as a few characters and Eliot kicking butts and schmoozing the ladies. There are MANY mentions of events from the first 4 seasons (as this is placed during season 4) but also some hints of season 5 (kind of like foreshadowing so you can tell he did his research on the events AFTER the placement of the story.) The fact that the author is a true fan of the show comes through in his treatment and presentation of the characters. They are true to the show and their reactions are genuine as fans would expect them to be. All around I enjoyed this novel immensely!
