Liars and Thieves

Read An Excerpt


      Stephen Coonts first introduced ex-burglar, now CIA agent Tommy Carmellini in the bestselling Jake Grafton novel, CUBA. Now Tommy takes center stage as Stephen Coonts brings his trademark edge-of-the-seat thrills and explosive writing to LIARS AND THIEVES—and tackles Washington like never before.

      The defection of the archivist for the KGB, who escapes Russia with seven suitcases full of notes purloined from the files of his former employer, and a massacre at a government safe house put Tommy Carmellini on the trail of a dark conspiracy.

      After he barely escapes with his life, he realizes someone in the United States government is behind it all. Which begs the question, who can Carmellini trust?
Note: This book was published as LIARS & THIEVES in the U.S. and Canada by St. Martin's Press, which didn't like the original title, WAGES OF SIN.  The British publisher, Orion, stayed with the original title.  Buyers should beware if they buy books over the internet... LIARS & THIEVES and WAGES OF SIN are the same book as published by two different publishers.
