The Black Sun Summary


The Black Sun by James Twining

High adventure, mind-blowing suspense. Tom Kirk, the world's greatest art thief, is back on another life-threatening mission.

In London, an Auschwitz survivor is murdered in his hospital bed, his killers making off with a macabre trophy - his severed left arm.

In Fort Mead, Maryland, a vicious gang breaks into the NSA museum and steals a World War II Enigma machine, lynching the guard who happens to cross their path.

Meanwhile, in Prague, a frenzied and mindless anti-Semitic attack on a synagogue culminates in the theft of a seemingly worthless painting by a little known Czech artist called Karel Bellak.

A year has passed since Tom Kirk, the world's greatest art thief, decided to put his criminal past behind him and embark on a new career, on the right side of the law . Then three major thefts occur, and suddenly Tom is confronted with a deadly mystery and a sinister face from the past.

The Black Sun Reviews


Praise for `The Black Sun'

`The Black Sun is pure unadulterated fun' USA Today

`A pacey well-constructed thriller with plenty of surprises and action' What's on London

'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, author of `Without Mercy' and `The Eagle Has Landed'.

`Dan Brown eat your heart out.'
Northern Echo

`A thrilling read' Cork Evening Echo

Praise for `The Double Eagle.'

`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 world.'
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
