Seattle in the 1940s: from its sprawling ports to its exotic bordellos in Chinatown, it is a rain-drenched harbor of greed, sex, and corruption-and now a mysterious murder. Alan Stewart loses his private investigator father at the hands of corrupt police officials. As he sets out to seek answers and to avenge his father's death, Alan uncovers clues that lead all the way to the "Crime of the Century"-The Lindbergh Kidnapping!
"No one can write about cops-and-robbers-like a real police officer. When they are good, they are very, very good, and Captain Neil Low is good as he magically captures another era in his new book: Thick As Thieves. Reading it is akin to stepping into a film noir, shadowy, smoky, and shocking. No one is whom he seems to be, and each unveiling heightens the pace of high tension. How could the Lindbergh kidnapping be connected to Seattle? Low's vivid imagination makes one wonder...Why did a loyal son, bent on revenge, allow himself to sink into the enemy's quagmire of betrayal and violence? This is a great book, alive with action, sometimes shocking in its scenes of forbidden sex, and unremittingly true in its characterizations. Set aside a few days to read it because you won't want to stop!" -Ann Rule
"Murder and justice. Sex and love. Greed and honor. This is a morality play in the tradition of Shakespeare's 'Richard III' in which the line between right and wrong is as blurred as when one looks through gray rain at twilight over Seattle's somber hills. Neil Low, a veteran Seattle cop, has seen it all." -Lowen Clausen
"An inside look at the dark side of law enforcement from a bygone time." -Chief R. Gil Kerlikowske
