Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Among Thieves by John Clarkson, read by John Chancer.

*****

Unfairly imprisoned by the State of New York, ex-con James Beck is a man with a keen sense of right and wrong. But when a friend's niece turns to him for help, he soon discovers that the men at whose hands she's suffered are more dangerous than he could possibly have imagined.

In order to prevail, he and his gang of friends will have to outwit, out-flank and out-fight a formidable array of opponents the like of which they've never before encountered. Or die trying . . .

Peter Blauner, author of Slow Motion Riot and Slipping into Darkness

Among Thieves is an adrenaline fueled rush of reality and James Beck is one of the baddest, boldest, brashest creations ever seen in the pages of any thriller. It's a rock 'n roll, foot-stomper of a book and once you start you cannot stop reading. You can't ask for more out of a crime novel than you get from Among Thieves. It is as good as good gets
