Written by Lawrence Sanders (novel)
A woman writes mystery novels using men’s pseudonyms. But, after awhile the books stop selling. Her agent and publisher suggest she has lost touch with reality.
So, in an effort to make her books more realistic, she goes undercover with a good friend and commissions actual criminals to pull off a jewelry heist, all the time planning to pull out before the robbery actually takes place. But to her surprise the crew is on to her and forces her at gunpoint to go through with the heist, and that’s when things start becoming far too real. Pursued by the mob and the FBI the story accelerates to a hair raising climax you have to see to believe!
