FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan never can seem to stay far from trouble. When a body turns up in a tranquil English village, dark secrets about a ghastly past rope the duo into yet another hair-raising adventure in Carla Neggers’ latest, Thief’s Mark. 

Carla Neggers' THIEF'S MARK


When Oliver York was a mere boy, he lived a privileged life with his socialite parents, until the day he saw them murdered in their posh London flat and was kidnapped himself. Although he managed to escape, he spent the next 30 years on the run, trying to elude his captors. But now one of them has surfaced and Oliver may be in more peril than he realizes.

Sharpe and Donovan are just wrapping up their Irish honeymoon when a break in at Emma’s grandfather’s house leads them to Cotswolds, England, in search of York. But when they arrive, all they find is a corpse. As the agents investigate, evidence mounts against Oliver who remains nowhere to be found.

As they are caught up in the fray of the case, suddenly Emma and Colin find themselves wondering if Oliver lied about his past or if they can ever trust him again. Will they be able to unravel the seemingly endless morass of secrets and solve the case before the killer strikes again?

From the picturesque town of Cotswolds to its intriguing residents, readers will undoubtedly find themselves pleasantly caught up in a web of secrets that is decades old. And as the body count rises and the investigation ensues, longtime fans will recognize familiar faces as they navigate through a minefield of red herrings, carefully crafted to keep us guessing as to who the killer really is.

The novel finally culminates when the villain’s identity is finally revealed in an ending you’ll never see coming! Compulsively readable, cleverly plotted, and frequently hilarious, Thief’s Mark is a truly delightful addition to Carla Neggers’ popular Sharpe and Donovan series. Don’t miss it!
