Stealing Thunder


Rysbeck Abbey, an estate now in the hands of the not-for-profit charity Antiquity England provides the background for this novel of theft, murder—and trespassing. The action begins and ends in England, but a church in Germany, the Prague Christmas Market, a suburban home in Denmark, and a ferry ride on the North Sea all provide settings for the action in this story of loss and gain.

Rysbeck is full of antiques, but Thunder is very special. It's a curious name for a Qing dynasty jade figure of a reclining horse. While it was worth over a million pounds on any market, it is practically priceless to the billionaire from whose family it was taken in the late 1800's. When Thunder surfaces for sale, the wealthy Chinese man will stop at nothing to get his hands on it.
