Review The Thief Taker C.S. Quinn ✓ 2 Read Characters Ò PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ C.S. Quinn This is no isolated death The killer's mad appetites are part of a master plan that could destroy London and reveal the dark secrets of Charlie's own pastNow the thief taker must find this murderous mastermind before the plague obliterates. What a disappointmentI don t mean to sound like an ass but I simply cannot believe this author writes for her day job The syntax is abrupt and choppy andpainful She evidently has no idea how to work a comma The dialogue between lower class characters that doesn t contain contractions is enough to rip you right out of the storyThis is appallingly amateurish I ve read better fan fiction written by high school studentsI read than I probably should have the blurb made the book sound like something right up my alley Sadly it never improvedNice idea Wretched unprofessional execution Total waste of time

Review The Thief Taker C.S. Quinn ✓ 2 Read Characters Ò PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ C.S. Quinn The year is 1665 Black Death ravages London A killer stalks the streets in a plague doctor's hood and maskWhen a girl is gruesomely murdered thief taker Charlie Tuesday reluctantly agrees to take on the case But the horrific remains tell him. In the 1660s thief takers solved the cases that were beneath the dignity of the typical London watchmen The poorer sort of people who had experienced a crime or theft would come to men like the title character in this story for justice He would attempt to track down the perpetrator by finding the property that they took and fencedUsually the thief taker could either get the property back for his client or turn the thief in to the higher authorities But the punishments back then were so barbaric chopping off a hand splitting noses that the thief taker would usually just let the criminal go with a warning to not steal again or advise him to find a different clienteleCharlie Tuesday is a thief taker in London One day a beautiful young woman comes to him for help in solving her sister s murder Normally he doesn t work on any cases larger than theft but the money that is offered is than he can refuseFrom the strange mutilation of the body he determines that there s to this crime than meets the eye As the plague descends on London he and Anna Maria race to stop the murderer from striking again and perhaps even threatening the throne of England itself The Thief Taker s scenery is lush The customs clothing and food from 1665 are so different from what we have now The reader is whisked away to a world that is the same in some ways human behavior and emotions and so different in other ways social structures and occupations I didn t even know what a thief taker was until I read this book The story is an intricate mystery with the murders possible witchcraft and treason I didn t see the ending coming at all It could be that I don t read that many mysteries but I thought that it was really well doneAnother fascinating piece to this story are the plague victims The horrific conditions that the author describes like bodies rotting in the streets and the Thames becoming clogged with corpses around London Bridge actually took placeBecause of these icky details The Thief Taker occasionally veers towards the horror genre but never really crosses that line I kept picturing the rotting plague victims as zombies In some ways they re similar Contact with a plague victim could bring infection Sometimes the main character would come across a body that would appear dead but wasn t dead At one point in the story a character describes the plague victims who are wandering the streets in search of mercy as the walking dead It was very creepyAlso the societal breakdown that accompanied the plague was so uick Every moment the characters were in the London streets was filled with tension The reader didn t know if a plague victim was going to pop out of a uarantined house or if a thug was going to try to commit a robbery in a dark alleyReaders who like the historical fiction of Philippa Gregory Judith Merkle Riley and Sarah Dunant may enjoy thisI received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads program
