Product Description

Review

The Book of Stolen Tales is 'fabulous' in every sense of the word. D.J. McIntosh has taken fables and fairy-tales that we thought we knew as children and strung them together to create glittering clues to a dark and terrifying secret hidden at the very heart of modern-day Mesopotamia. A fabulous read!” - New York Times bestselling author Katherine Neville

"D.J. McIntosh is a terrific storyteller, and The Book of Stolen Tales kept me turning pages way past bedtime." - Sean Chercover, bestselling author of The Trinity Game

About the Author

D.J. (Dorothy) McIntosh left her professional job to carve out a career as an author. It took almost ten years to research and write her debut novel, The Witch of Babylon, shortlisted for the Crime Writer Association’s Debut Dagger Award and winner of an Arthur Ellis Award for best unpublished crime novel. The Witch was an instant hit, sold in twenty countries around the world. It was chosen by Amazon.ca as one of the best books of the year and by CNN International as one of six enduring historical thrillers along with notable writers like Agatha Christie, Umberto Eco and Dan Brown.
 
The dark origins of famous fairy tales come to life in her second novel The Book of Stolen Tales. This June, the third in the series will come out. Entitled The Angel of Eden it’s a story about the search for the true location of the Garden of Eden.

Format: Paperback
I received a copy of this book via Goodreads Giveaway contest.

Fairy tales have a long and interesting history. They are tales we tell children. They are based on folk tales that have been around for centuries. We think them amusing nonsense. But is there more to them? That is the them of theme of this book. A 17th century book of fairy tales holds a clue to location of a dangerous disease. But which tale is it? The search is on for the tale that will solve the mystery of unknown disease. Who can you trust? Who is what they seem to be?

The author uses the same setting of Europe, New York City (smaller degree) and the Middle East. Mesopotaian history is a speciality of the author and it show is the novel as she weaves ancient history with current events. I felt the author did a good job of doing this and made the story real. There were a couple of supernatural things that she had a tough time explaining. But that is what made the book fun.

Maybe because it was the second book I read from this author with the same lead character that I enjoyed this book. I ahd a bettr feel for the character and his backstory. The previous book spent a lot of time on events prior tot he story at hand. The book was still much action driven with character development done just enough to explain actions, but not necessaryoly drive the story.

This was good. I enjoyed reading it.

The Book of Stolen Tales is a fascinating read. Drawn on a vast canvas, J.D. McIntosh expertly intertwines a contemporary thriller plot with a journey into the realm of fairy tales. And John Madison, her engaging protagonist who made his debut in The Witch of Babylon, is back as the central character. When a rare seventeenth-century volume of fairy tales is stolen from his hotel room, Madison sets out to recover it and salvage his reputation as an art dealer. His quest takes him through a dreamlike terrain with characters right out of Beauty and the Beast, and other fables. The Book of Stolen Tales is a sophisticated work that draws on a wealth of research into history, mythology and art history. Put it at the top of your summer reading list.

D.J. McIntosh does it again. Even better than her runaway bestseller debut (The Witch of Babylon), The Book of Stolen Tales is a mysterious, intellectual trip through Europe's past and present.

I particularly like the investigator Shaheen. Quirky, disrespectful of authority, and nobody's fool, I had a grin on my face as I read most of his scenes.

I'm thrilled to include such a talented writer as McIntosh among my Canadian crime writing colleagues. She will help make Canada the next Scandinavia of crime fiction.

Format: Paperback
A chase across Europe and into the Middle East in persuit of a book of fairy tales. That might be more than just stories. A exciting read with plenty of twists and turns.
