The action is relentless, twist turns upon twist as the intricacies of an exceptional plot unfold, revealing Beck as a man never to be underestimated. This is an outstanding thriller from a writer at the top of his game * Daily Mail * 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 an adrenaline fueled rush of reality and James Beck is one of the baddest, boldest, brashest creations ever seen in the pages of any thriller. It's a rock 'n roll, foot-stomper of a book and once you start you cannot stop reading. You can't ask for more out of a crime novel than you get from Among Thieves. It is as good as good gets -- Lorenzo Carcaterra, New York Times bestselling author of Sleepers and The Wolf An outstanding thriller * Publishers Weekly * Among Thieves is fabulous, pure and simple * Book Reporter * Strong storytelling.
