Nightwork by Nora Roberts

This book was sent to Traveling With T for review consideration.



Harry Booth started stealing at nine to keep a roof over his ailing mother’s head, slipping into luxurious, empty homes at night to find items he could trade for precious cash. When his mother finally succumbed to cancer, he left Chicago—but kept up his nightwork.

Wandering from the Outer Banks to Savannah to New Orleans, he dons new identities and stays careful, observant, distant. He can’t afford to attract attention—or get attached. Still, he can’t help letting his guard down when he meets Miranda Emerson. But the powerful bond between them cannot last—because not all thieves follow Harry’s code of honor. Some pay others to take risks so they can hoard more treasures. Some are driven by a desire to own people the way they own paintings and jewels. And after Harry takes a lucrative job commissioned by Carter LaPorte, LaPorte sees a tool he can use, and decides he wants to own Harry.

The man is a predator more frightening than the alligators that haunt the bayou—and when he strongarms Harry into robbing a Baltimore museum, Harry abandons Miranda—cruelly, with no explanation—and disappears. But no matter what name he uses or where he goes, LaPorte casts a shadow over Harry’s life. To truly free himself, he must face down his enemy once and for all. Only then can he hope to possess something more valuable than anything he has ever stolen…


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve been a Nora Roberts fan for a few years- love her romantic suspense books!


What I Liked:

This cover. I have thought for some time that Nora’s book covers could be sold as wall art and each book cover just reaffirms that.

Our main character, Harry. Each of the books I have read by Nora Roberts (maybe 7-10) have had a female lead as the main character. Harry was a change of pace and I liked it!


I loved the tension in this book- from when Harry was a small boy making his choices to later- when choices were taken away from him in ways. Nora does use some comedy in some of Harry’s schemes- a bit of an Ocean’s 11 meets White Collar vibe at times.


Bottom line: Fans of Nora Roberts will be pleased with her latest book and new to her readers will enjoy as well.
