Safecracker: A Novel

Front Cover
St. Martin's Publishing Group, 2022 - Fiction - 320 pages

In this wicked debut, safecracker Michael Maven must pull off the most dangerous theft of his long career—or his friends and family will be killed.

Safecracker Michael Maven's latest job should be simple: steal a rare coin from a New York apartment. Except the coin's owner comes home with a beautiful woman, who murders him, nearly murders Maven, and takes the coin herself, and then Maven's life gets really complicated: the woman's boss, a sadistic drug lord, forces him to take on a far more dangerous job.

If Maven fails to crack the safe of a rival cartel boss in Miami, his friends and family will die. If he succeeds, he might. Which means he not only has to somehow pull off an impossible heist, but also outwit two crime bosses as well as his reluctant new partner – the woman who started it all.

Ryan Wick hits the right combination in Safecracker, unlocking a fast-paced, action-packed, cinematic thriller, the first in a new series.
