It takes a thief to catch a killer . . .
Once one of the world's foremost art thieves, Tom Kirk now operates on the other side of the law. But a grisly discovery at the site of the brazen theft of a Da Vinci painting—a crime that bears the unmistakable hallmark of an old nemesis—entangles him in a lethal weave of a mystery that blankets the globe . . . and reaches back through hundreds of years of European history.
In Spain, a friend, a master forger, suffers a brutal, horrific death—while in New York the murder of a prominent attorney drags FBI agent Jennifer Browne into the murky world of high-end art forgery and the rotten heart of the global auction business. And for Kirk, vengeance may require him to cross the line once more—to uncover the devastating secrets hidden in the writings of a power-mad emperor . . . and behind the most famous smile in the world.

PRAISE FOR THE BLACK SUN (HB) 'A story that harks back to the Nazis, Hitler and a legendary treasure. What more could you want? If there's a better thriller this year I would like to see it.' Jack Higgins, bestselling author of Without Mercy and The Eagle Has Landed 'An exciting, suspenseful and fast-paced novel' Bookreporter.com PRAISE FOR THE DOUBLE EAGLE (HB) 'A carefully constructed tale straight out of the Dan Brown mould of thriller writing' Sunday Sun 'The Double Eagle will leave you breathless, but never dizzy. Solid debut work' Ladsmag 'This would make the perfect Tom Cruise movie' The Independent on Sunday 'A captivating, engrossing debut,!a fast-paced tale of international crime and skullduggery written with style and panache. Twining is a worthy successor to Forsyth, Follett, and Higgins. Highly recommended.' Christoper Reich 'This is an auspicious beginning for a fledgling series' Publishers Weekly 'Brilliantly written with numerous double crosses taking place, James Twining has created a delightful and thought-provoking protagonist. Along with deceit, shattered promises, and murder all going hand in hand The Double Eagle is certainly a pacy novel' Shots
