Description

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.

A Simon & Schuster audio production.

  • (4/5)
    Another great Michael St. Pierre adventure!

  • (3/5)
    interesting concept, extremely poor execution.
  • (3/5)
    Michael used to be a thief--one of the best--but he gave that up to live with the love of his life, Mary. He doesn't want anything to mess up his life with her, as after a stint in prison he knows he couldn't bear the agony of being seperated from her again. So when he is approached my a mysterious man who wants Michael to steal something for him he refuses--but then Mary gets cancer and there is no way he can pay for her medical treatment. So Michael gets involved with this mysterious man's request--to steal a set of keys from the Vatican that have a significance Michael is unaware of at first, and that horrifies him when he finds out. Now Michael and his allies must steal the keys back--or Mary will not only be in danger of losing her life, but also her very soul. The theological premise is shaky at best, but setting that aside there are some good thrills to be had from this story. So if you just want something fast paced with lots of action/adventure to pass the time, this will work.
