Thieftaker

by D. B. Jackson
Release date: June 28, 2012
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, history

Boston, 1767: Revolution is brewing as the British Crown imposes increasingly onerous taxes on the colonies, and intrigue swirls around firebrands like Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty. But for Ethan Kaille, a thieftaker who makes his living by conjuring spells that help him solve crimes, politics is for others... until he is asked to recover a necklace worn by the murdered daughter of a prominent family.

Suddenly, he faces another conjurer of enormous power, someone unknown, who is part of a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of power in the turbulent colony. His adversary has already killed — and not for his own gain, but in the service of his powerful masters, people for whom others are mere pawns in a game of politics and power.

Ethan is in way over his head, and he knows it. Already a man with a dark past, he can ill afford to fail, lest his livelihood be forfeit. But he can't stop now, for his magic has marked him, so he must fight the odds, even though he seems hopelessly overmatched, his doom seeming certain at the spectral hands of one he cannot even see.

“An excellent blend of mystery and magic set in the turmoil of Colonial Boston as revolution brews and political factions collide.” - Kate Elliott
