IBNA- The crime fiction thriller novel ‘Camino Island’ by the celebrated American writer John Grisham has been translated into Persian and is available in Iranian bookstores.
According to IBNA correspondent, the novel which is a departure from Grisham's main subject of legal thrillers and focuses on stolen rare books has been translated into Persian by Nafiseh Bagher-Zadehgan and released by Elmi Publishing.
The synopsis of ‘Camino Island’ reads: A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars.
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company.
A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets. But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise…
John Grisham is also an attorney, politician, and activist. He is best known for his popular legal thrillers. His books have been translated into 42 languages and published worldwide.
