David Hosp Among Thieves.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

On the night of the St. Patrick celebrations in 1990, some of the world's most famous and valuable paintings were stolen from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. They were never recovered, and there were no clues as to their whereabouts--that is, until now. When Boston attorney Scott Finn takes en well-known thief, Devon Malley, as a client, he gets much more than he bargained for. Not only is he asked to care for Devon's teenage daughter, Sally, while Devon awaits bail, but his investigations into what he believed was a case of petty theft, lead him to the underworld of Boston's organised crime gangs, links with the IRA and the realisation that he may be close to solving the mystery of the stolen paintings ali those years ago. But an Irishman who, at nine years old, saw his entire family murdered before his eyes is determined to avenge their death. His commitment to the cause is frightening and unrelenting, and he will never give up until the job is finished.
