Like Ocean's Eleven meets Mystic River, Among Thieves is a high-octane thriller from a writer at the top of his game. "Hardboiled urban noir from the pen of a master." (Lee Child). When Olivia Sanchez takes the fall for a cover up at a big-rolling Manhattan broking firm, ex-con James Beck steps in to try to help. It's a decision he quickly regrets. But Beck, once wrongly convicted of murder by the State of New York, is a man with a keen sense of justice and is determined to make things right whatever the odds. However there's more at stake than Beck can possibly imagine. And in order to prevail he and his friends will have outwit, out-flank and out-fight the formidable array of opponents ranged against them. Or die trying...Praise for John Clarkson: "An adrenalin fuelled rush. James Beck is one of the baddest, boldest, brashest creations ever seen in the pages of any thriller. You can't ask for more out of a crime novel, Among Thieves is as good as it gets." (Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers). "An outstanding thriller...for fans of." (Publishers Weekly). "John Clarkson's Among Thieves is an intense, well-written thriller about tough, cunning men whose conflicting schemes turn Brooklyn into a battlefield." (Thomas Perry). "Fans of the great Lawrence Block and Lee Child will get their money's worth and then some." (Peter Blauner, author of Slow Motion Riot and Slipping into Darkness). "Among Thieves is fabulous, pure and simple." (Book Reporter). "Strong storytelling. Highly entertaining." (salon.com).
