The Kindness of Thieves

Please join us in congratulating Gail Feeney on the publication of her debut historical novel, The Kindness of Thieves! Jessica Cale had the pleasure of assisting Gail with a copyedit, and Jenny Q designed the cover. Here's the book description:

The Kindness of Thieves, set in 1857 Victorian England, is a story of suspense layered with romantic intrigue.

In the guise of a suave gentleman returned to his native land, Jack Cooper sets out to plan one last scheme to line his pockets before leaving his life of crime and establishing himself in a life of respectability. Jack finds the perfect target, the pampered heiress of a wealthy businessman.

Anne Reed, a country vicar’s daughter, has a life rich in books and lacking in future prospects. To her surprise, she is given the opportunity to visit London. In the company of friends and family, Anne begins to discover her place in the world. One of those friends is Jack’s new target.

Jack insinuates himself into the girls’ social circle and proceeds to stage the last big job of his career, the abduction of the heiress.

Plans never work out as intended.
