Robert Grey, an ordinary building contractor, overheard a priceless information from a couple of petty criminals - about Wilson the accountant and Nietrop building - while dining at his favorite restaurant. His income was enough, but the building trade was going through its economic downturn, and he could use the information that he just got to his advantage. After much self-deliberation, he came to one solid conclusion – he was going to steal FOUR MILLION BUCKS. Then, everything got complicated when Harry Noble, a police inspector, stepped in to investigate.

Written by Douglas Wright, "Up for Grabs" is a fast-moving tale about one man’s mission to turn his life around – financially. For a first time thief, Grey definitely possess the right aptitude, planning and executing his plan like a pro, despite some glitches in the way. I’m a little surprised with the switch of the narrative tone in the middle of the story; from Grey’s first-person view to third-person view. There’s a risk that it will confuse the readers. However, I did find myself able to adjust with this unexpected transition after a while. Generally, the story is good, even reminds me of some of my favorite TV dramas and films with similar plot. The formatting needs a bit of a polishing though, and the dialogue could be more believable to grab the readers’ attention in order to engage them more into the story. All in all, this book will attract and entertain the right readers.
