Praise for Royal Heist:
“Featuring great wealth, thoroughbred racehorses, a cosmopolitan setting, and beautiful women with incredibly big jewels . . . Royal Heist is, however, several cuts above its glossy brethren, thanks to a remarkable protagonist named Edward de Jersey (think Pierce Brosnan). . . . La Plante’s opulent opus offers readers a chance to identify with a charismatic hero who romps with the super-rich.”
“Four stars! Lynda LaPlante’s latest is a real diamond. . . . What makes the novel is the intricate plotting as de Jersey sets out to achieve the impossible. [She] keeps you on the edge till the very end.”
–The Daily Express (London)
“The creator of Prime Suspect pulls it off with her usual edgy pace and solid characterisation. A backdrop of horse-racing loaded with toffs adds glamour.”
–The Daily Mirror (London)
