*Starred Review* Doetsch continues to demonstrate why he’s one of the best thriller writers in the business. In his latest Michael St. Pierre novel, Michael is trying to escape his thieving background and settle down with his girlfriend, KC. The settling-down part, unfortunately, will have to wait. At the airport, a woman befriends KC, but she has a secret agenda. Soon Michael is forced to take on an impossible assignment involving Chinese triads if he wants KC to survive. He must steal a priceless artifact from an impenetrable vault and solve a centuries-old mystery in less than five days. Meanwhile, KC has been given an assignment of her own that also appears impossible, and if she fails, Michael will die. The heroes and villains are all well rounded, and the plot twists are exceptional. Another strong entry in Doetsch’s Thieves series, following The Thieves of Darkness (2010). --Jeff Ayers
“The tension leaps off the pages in this classic, ticking-clock thriller. Watch out. You'll grip the pages so tight your knuckles will turn white.” —Steve Berry
“Doetsch steps up his game with his fourth thriller featuring ex-thief Michael St. Pierre.... Plenty of action blends with interesting history and criminal tradecraft for a satisfying read.”
“Richard Doetsch's The Thieves of Legend stole my breath with the sheer audacity of its storytelling, proving yet again that this series gets better with every installment. Bold, richly told, and rollicking with adventure, here is thriller that demands to be read in one tension-wrought sitting. Count me a fan for life!”
