LeverageLeverage is Hitting The Books on Amazon


Last night, as I was looking through my Twitter Feed, I caught one from Leverage author Matt Forbeck. Leverage, The Con Job had hit #2 on the Amazon Best Sellers List and #19 on Kindle’s Bestseller List. I had to check out the list and not only was Leverage The Con Job #2, but two as yet unreleased Leverage Mass Market Paperbacks were also in the top twenty, one was at #7. That may not sound big to some people, but with the latest Game of Thrones installment at #5, Leverage authors are holding their own. The list has changed a bit since last night and Leverage: The Con Job has slipped to #4, with George R.R. Martin’s tome taking over second place.


So, to help you all get these Leverage books to number 1,2, and 3, I am here with the synopses, locations, authors and review links. Let’s go steal a best seller list!

Marney Brillinger is in trouble. The zoo that has been in her family for generations is failing, and when she makes a deal with a Malanian priest to loan her two exotic black rhinos for a special exhibit, they never arrive. Now, she’s on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars to the priest, who was planning to use the money for sick children.

Desperate, she turns to Nate Ford and his team for assistance. But finding two very large lost animals is no easy feat when the search involves duplicity—both international and close–to–home—and the unwelcome arrival of Nate’s nemesis, Interpol agent James Sterling.

With Sterling around, if the team isn’t careful, they just might end up in cages of their own . . .

It’s not money Denise is worried about. Gavin had intended to donate much of his profits to human-rights organizations, and Brad has no plan to honor those wishes. So the team sets out to use Brad’s own greed to get him out of the picture.

But soon Denise notices she’s being followed. Is it Brad? Her boyfriend’s mysterious informant? Or his killer? Whoever it is, Nate and the crew will have to read between the lines if they’re going to close the book on this case.

Based on the hit TV series Leverage!
