Among Thieves

Originally released in April 2011 in the United States, Douglas Hulick’s debut novel Among Thieves has since been published in eight countries and six languages, as well as an audio book in the U.S. It was a finalist for both the Kitschie’s Golden Tentacle Award (best debut) and the David Gemmell Morningstar award for best book by a newcomer to the fantasy genre. It also appeared on the Locus best seller list. Among Thieves was an editor’s pick for one of the Ten Best Fantasy Novels of 2011 on Amazon UK, and made numerous “Best of 2011″ and “Debut of the Year” lists across the web.

“Among Thieves is an unalloyed pleasure: a fast moving, funny, twisting tale in an evocative setting with great characters. The kind of story that reminds you why you love to read. This book may just give you that feeling you had the first time you read Rothfuss or Abercrombie: Oh hell yeah, there’s new talent in the game. Read this book. No really, read this book.” – New York Times bestselling author Brent Weeks



Death around the corner …

Ildrecca is a dangerous city, if you don’t know what you’re doing. It takes a canny hand and a wary eye to run these streets and survive. Fortunately, Drothe has both. He has been a member of the Kin for years, rubbing elbows with thieves and murderers from the dirtiest of alleys to the finest of neighborhoods. Working for a crime lord, he finds and takes care of trouble inside his boss’s organization—while smuggling relics on the side.

But when his boss orders Drothe to track down whoever is leaning on his organization’s people, he stumbles upon a much bigger mystery. There’s a book, a relic any number of deadly people seem to be looking for—a book that just might bring down emperors and shatter the criminal underworld.

A book now inconveniently in Drothe’s hands…
