Aoife O'Byrne, a famous Irish painter and friend of Emma's,
got one of the crosses. Coincidentally, some of Aoife's
artwork features crosses with Celtic symbols. She was
called to Boston by Rachel to discuss the possibility of
making a movie, and they had met the evening before
Rachel's demise. Rachel's daughter, Maisie, is also
involved in making the movie, but the two women cannot
agree on the conditions.
Meanwhile, Colin and Emma's boss, Yank, is in Ireland; his
wife Lucy has gone AWOL; things have not been going so well
between them for some time. On a whim, Lucy flew
impulsively to Dublin to surprise her husband and at the
same time to pay Aoife a visit. When Lucy reaches the
artist's studio, she finds the door unlocked and
HARBOR ISLAND is a carefully crafted suspense
that unfolds mostly in Maine and Ireland, both locations
brought to life through the author's accurate and loving
descriptions. There are several quite unexpected twists and
turns, no detail is in vain; everything leads to a dramatic
conclusion. I had no inkling as to who did what and why;
I couldn't ask for anything better! I love the how the
characters interact with each other, their relationships,
and how everything and everybody are
interconnected, even though it might not appear that way at
the time. Ms. Neggers is such a gifted author that she
succeeds in creating a painting out of words and sentences.
In this vivid and suspenseful addition to her widely
acclaimed Sharpe & Donovan series, New York Times
bestselling author Carla Neggers takes readers on a
heart-stopping journey from Boston to Ireland to the rocky
coast of Maine
Emma Sharpe, granddaughter of world-renowned art detective
Wendell Sharpe, is a handpicked member of a small
Boston-based FBI team. For the past decade Emma and her
grandfather have been trailing an elusive serial art thief.
The first heist was in Ireland, where an ancient Celtic
cross was stolen. Now the Sharpes receive a replica of the
cross after every new theftâ€”reminding them of their
continued failure to capture their prey.
As the danger escalates, Emma and Colin must also face
do-or-die questions about their relationship. While there's
no doubt they are in love, can they give their hearts and
souls to their work and have anything left for each other?
There's one thing Emma and Colin definitely agree on: before
they can focus on their future, they must outwit one of the
smartest, most ruthless killers they've ever encountered.
