I have a confession to make. I own this book and the next in the series, but I have not yet read them despite finding the cover and the blurb great. So shame on me. Anyway, I love the historical fiction and I love it when its mix in magic or in any way change history. This book looks marvelous. I have read a short novella and loved it and I'm looking forward to getting to this book and read it...(in 2017 perhaps)
a similar cover to the book as you can see down below, but I think I prefer the first one since the other looks a bit pale.
Boston, 1765: In D.B. Jackson's Thieftaker, 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.
