Oliver finally receives closure on his parents murder and his kidnapping as a child. He along with his girlfriend Emma, who is also M15, solved the mystery and arrested the murderer. Lots of twists and turns that will keep you engrossed!

My favorite mystery setting, an English village, and a pair of FBI agents who are definitely out of their geographic element...what more could I want? Throw in an art thief (which I've always found fun and exciting, probably because these art thieves are daring and, well, sort of James Bond-ish, even the women) and a heinous crime from the past and the stage is set for an engrossing read. Emma's grandfather is an art detective in the private collector realm and has a strange tale for Emma and Colin. It seems that he's had a break-in by someone apparently interested in items connected to one Oliver York. To add a little more mystique, Oliver used to be an accomplished art thief but then became an MI5 agent. Emma and Colin have years-long ties to Oliver through both of his professions but, when a dead man is found at his home, the case becomes ever-expanding and eventually involves multiple countries and law enforcement organizations. While this is part of the Sharpe & Donovan series, it's essentially a standalone and focuses largely on Oliver. He is a fascinating man and he makes it easy to understand why cops and robbers sometimes can't help liking and even respecting each other. Emma and Colin are a delightful couple as well as being really good agents and Oliver's colleague, Henrietta, is a force of nature but it's Wendell, Emma's grandfather, who really stole my heart. All in all, Thief's Mark was a grand introduction, for me, to this series and the rest of the books are going on my wishlist right now.

Favorite Quotes: I never bought the absolute-secrecy thing as a kid. I always figured Father Callaghan would rat me out to my parents if I told him the good stuff. Did you tell your priest all your sins? He’s a great guy but he can be like an old housecoat. Comfy and no bother. His flush deepened until he was purple to his hair roots. My Review: As I made my way through the complicated tale of Thief’s Mark, and even as I finished that last page, I vacillated in how I felt about the author’s style as well as how to review and rate the book. For the most part, it was like old-timey picture taking with sepia prints - incrementally slow and causing me to squirm a bit – that was until the last quarter of the book when everything happened on triple zoom speed… like I’d accidentally drank rocket fuel or hit fast forward. However, despite the tortoise/hare like speed of the storyline, I was intrigued, baffled and perplexed by the present circumstances and thirty-year history of the original crime, overwhelmed by the complicated family histories, and blown away by the sheer amount of eccentric characters; yet still completely on the hook for the totally never saw ANY of that coming ending. It was an intricate head-scratcher, but I have to bow to the creativity of the plot and author, she confounded me. I have just recently started to dip into this genre and was unaware of Ms. Neggers’ massive body of work, and have surmised she must be a rather devious character herself to have contrived such a twisty tale populated by a large, peculiar, and cagey cast of characters.

The Sharpe and Donovan series has been one of my favorite reads. I enjoy seeing the characters evolve, and this latest book gives the reader a clear picture of Oliver and his troubled past. It may be the best one yet!
