House of Thieves
by Charles Belfoure




Overview -

The world of old New York comes alive in this beguiling tale of mystery and intrigue... Charles Belfoure definitely has the touch.--Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Patriot Threat and The Lincoln Myth

Gangs of New York meets The Age of Innocence as a society architect in 1880s Manhattan is forced to join a gritty crime ring in this historical thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Architect

In 1886 New York, a respectable architect shouldn't have any connection to the notorious gang of thieves and killers that rules the underbelly of the city. But when John Cross's son racks up an unfathomable gambling debt to Kent's Gents, Cross must pay it back himself. All he has to do is use his inside knowledge of high society mansions and museums to craft a robbery even the smartest detectives won't solve--the bigger the payout, the faster this will be over.

As he hones his talent for sniffing out vulnerable and lucrative targets, Cross becomes invaluable to the gang. But his entire life has become a balancing act, and it will only take one mistake for it all to come crashing down.

A fast-paced historical mystery, House of Thieves is perfect for the book club that loved A Gentleman in Moscow and The Art Forger, blending fine society with a brilliant cast of dubious characters.
