With publishing one’s works being easier than ever – especially through self-publishing –, the readers are faced with a great number of novels to choose from. When deciding upon a novel, there are several factors to be taken into consideration, one of which is the genre. Although having works of fiction neatly organized by genre simplifies the selection process for an individual, there are days when one wishes to read a bit of everything: thriller, romance, comedy, and so on. One book which successfully combines several genres is Jon McDonald’s “Lights – Camera – Heist!: A Romantic Misadventure.”
In this genre-bending novel, two partners in crime, who are also life partners, pass through a series of misadventures as they attempt several heists. “Lights – Camera – Heist!” begins with one such attempt, which involves stealing a Guarneri cello that is owned by the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates. Although the protagonists are confident in their plan – which they consider to be flawless –, the heist doesn’t run smoothly at all, and they find themselves chased by helicopters. In order to escape the chase, they pretend to be dead in the Persian Gulf. Despite the fact that their first heist was a complete failure, the two witty thieves assume other identities and devise a new plan. Thus, their adventures – or as the author appropriately called them, misadventures – continue.
“Lights – Camera – Heist!: A Romantic Misadventure”
is a fast-paced novel, which abounds in humorous scenes. Thanks to the combination of various genre elements, Jon McDonald’s book is bound to satisfy any reader’s tastes and needs. Although the protagonists are involved in crimes, their witty, snappy dialogues and funny misadventures render them highly likeable. One may find “Lights – Camera – Heist!: A Romantic Misadventure”
