Family Jewels by M. J. O'Shea
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
Corbin Ford is following in the career path of his family as an international jewel thief. His father was known as the Nightwatchman and never caught. Corbin’s mother is still pulling off elaborate heists when boredom sets in. She has no plans to retire at the moment like dear old dad. Though Corbin has more than enough tucked away he’s not ready to walk away either. In truth he’s recently resurrected the Nightwatchman to stump the police in Europe.
American Luke Eldridge joined Interpol’s Art Crimes Unit several years ago and calls a flat in London home. Luke’s been assigned to a recent rash of high stakes break-ins all over Europe. It has all the earmarks of the legendary Nightwatchman, yet there’s no way the thief could be the original after so many years. He’s dubbed the criminal NW2 and been frustrated time and again because they’ve got nothing to go on.
The only positive in his life right now is Corbin. It was supposed to be a simple hookup after a visit to his favorite gay pub, but day after day the two grow closer. Neither is aware they are both lying about their jobs. Luke and Corbin are playing a cat and mouse game of international drama without either being the wiser. The truth will be a bitter pill to swallow.
A rich, intricate drama unfolds in Family Jewels. Their intimate and detailed storyline will capture and hold the reader from the first page to the last. Corbin and Luke breathe life into Family Jewels. Doomed one way or another it’s a fascinating journey to the truth. Family Jewels has strong, complex characters who honestly love each other and no way out. Witty and agonizing throughout. A real page turner.
