LIAR'S KEY is the sixth in the Sharpe & Donovan series by
action filled writer Carla Neggers. This installment centers
around FBI agent Emma Sharpe, a retired agent who gets to
close to the fire by the name of Gordy Wheelock, a cat
burglar, a heist with hints of terrorism, and, last but not
least, a wedding.
As Emma heads to Maine to meet her fiancee, Colin Donovan,
she begins to investigate. Colin is FBI and recently
finished an undercover assignment. He is tired but needs to
spend some time catching up on his rest and planning a
special honeymoon for Emma after their upcoming wedding.
Colin and Emma bring the romantic theme to this story of
murder, lies, and betrayals.
Oliver York is my favorite character. English, and
brazen, he is a cat burgler who never got caught and will
never be prosecuted. Charming, good at changing any subject
he has no wish to talk about, he added a lot to this tale.
Carla Neggers writes a suspenseful and interesting book with
a look into antiquities and mosaics. LIAR'S KEY begins in
Boston, heads to Ireland and ends up on the beautiful rocky
coast of Maine. The build up of the plot is a bit slow for
me, but the ending was good and the murderer a surprise. Is
their story going to continue in the next
series? A good read once more by Carla Neggers.
An FBI legend, a mysterious antiquities specialist and a
brazen art thief draw top FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin
Donovan into a complex web of blackmail, greed and murder in
the eagerly awaited new novel in the highly acclaimed Sharpe
& Donovan series
Emma Sharpe is suspicious when retired Special Agent Gordon
Wheelock, a legend in FBI art crimes, drops by her Boston
office for a visit. Gordy says he's heard rumors about
stolen ancient mosaics. Emma, an art crimes specialist
herself, won't discuss the rumors. Especially since they
involve Oliver York, an unrepentant English art thief. Gordy
and Emma's grandfather, a renowned private art detective,
chased Oliver for a decade. Gordy knows Wendell Sharpe
didn't give him everything he had on the thief. Even now,
Oliver will never be prosecuted.
From Boston to Maine to Ireland, Emma and Colin track a
dangerous killer as the lives of their family and friends
are at stake. With the help of their friend, Irish priest
Finian Bracken, and Emma's brother, Lucas, the Sharpes and
Donovans must band together to stop a killer.
No one creates exciting, action-packed romantic suspense
and international intrigue like New York Times bestselling
author Carla Neggers.
