The Thieves of Darkness is good book full of great action and adventure. The author has a wonderful talent detailing everything.
KC and her sister Cindy were both interesting strong women. I enjoyed how the friendship between KC and Michael formed realistically and they had a good chemistry. This led them to being able to relate well to each other. Even with them being thieves I thought they still cared and had their own type of goodness. Simon was interesting and cocky and fun. Michael was strong yet tender and caring and KC was strong yet had good qualities. Cindy was interesting because she evolved character wise through this book. The enemies were great in a cruel way and there was a lot of well-done action and twists in this book.
Great characters, great description, and great story make this book one to purchase.
An irresistible treasure, two master thieves, and a secret as old as mankind . . .
Michael St. Pierre, a reformed master thief, thinks he has left his criminal days far behind him, when he receives word that his best friend, Simon, has been locked up and sentenced to die in a brutal desert prison. Breaking into jail for the first time in his checkered career, Michael is stunned to discover that his new girlfriend, KC, is connected to Simon’s case.
With a madman on their heels, the three adventurers make their way to Istanbul in search of the mysterious artifact that landed Simon behind bars in the first place: a map containing the location of a holy place lost to the mists of time, a repository of knowledge and treasure predating Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Testing their courage and wits, Michael and his team are forced to plot a series of daring thefts that take them inside some of the city’s most celebrated (and heavily guarded) sanctums, from the imperial harem of Topkapi Palace to the tombs of the Hagia Sophia itself. More than priceless artifacts are at stake—the lives of loved ones and perhaps the fate of humanity itself hang in the balance.
A globe-trotting adventure that wings from the glittering banks of the Bosporus to the highest peaks of the Himalayas, The Thieves of Darkness confirms Richard Doetsch’s place as the modern-day master of pulse-pounding suspense.
