Fifteen Digits

Editorial reviews

Fifteen Digits

With a little more care, Santora could have made a first-rate thriller out of “Fifteen Digits.” (The title refers to the bank-access code where our band of amateur thieves stashes pilfered money.) Even as it is, readers will be mighty entertained — but may feel as if they’ve seen some of these dancing men before.

Though this novel cries out for some Elmore Leonard–like whittling away of soft tissue, Santora pulls no punches with his Faustus-like story.
