Présentation de l'éditeur

Top 20 bestseller crime novel

From international bestselling author Seb Kirby, TAKE NO MORE is an intriguing story of crime, corruption and duplicity. It is a must-read for fans of Harlan Coben, Daniel Silva and all who enjoy a thought provoking and exciting thriller.

An artistic voyage in crime - thrilling and original

When James Blake discovers his wife murdered in their London home, he is determined to find her killer. As the prime suspect, he flees England and sets out on a journey that takes him to Florence and Venice and into a dark underworld of corruption, a trail that will lead him to the killer - and the shocking truth behind the mystery.

Praise for Take No More:

'Wow! This is action-packed from page one, and the reader is instantly thrust into murder, suspense, and intrigue...... I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great crime thriller! And fans of Harlan Coben and Simon Kernick will love it!' - (Author Sibel Hodge, amazon.com)

'It was a few pages before I realized what I was reading: a sort of modern noir. I walked in the hero's shoes, was privy to his thoughts and intruded on his emotions as he was drawn into the mystery of his wife's death. Kirby's spare yet rich prose, his perfect word choices, made this a work that appeared to be effortlessly constructed. That seamlessness is the hallmark of a gifted writer. Definitely recommended.' (International bestseller Rebecca Forster, amazon.com)

'If you like Daniel Silva, you'll love 'Take No More' .....my favorite kind of thriller...' (International bestseller Libby Fischer Hellmann, amazon.com)

'The comparisons with Harlan Coben are well merited because this is a gripping thriller in the same vein. It begins with the aftermath of a violent act and doesn't let up until the end. As an author who always aims for momentum and suspense myself, I take my hat off to Kirby.' (International bestseller John Harding, amazon.com)

Reader reviews:

'Memorable characters with murder, organised crime, Italy and art....'

'There is much to admire about Seb Kirby's knowledge of the art world and there's plotting and deceit in the criminal underworld to contend with too.'

'I really liked the main character, James Blake and his fearless pursuit of the truth.'

'I loved the inclusion of a more modern evil... along with the search for lost classic art and the romantic tale of James Blake, who loved his wife very much...'

'Take great art of the Italian Renaissance, throw in a 21st century crime family reminiscent of the Borgias, a trace of darkness, a lot of murder and you have a good read for a rainy day....'

'Mystery and the arts - a great combo. The art world depiction was fascinating.... Made me want to visit the Louvre again.'

Biographie de l'auteur

International bestseller Seb Kirby is the author of the James Blake Thriller series (TAKE NO MORE, REGRET NO MORE and FORGIVE NO MORE) and the Raymond Bridges sci fi thriller series (DOUBLE BIND). He says: 'I've been an avid reader from an early age - my grandfather ran a mobile lending library in Birmingham and when it closed my parents inherited many of the books. From the first moment I was hooked. Now, as a full-time writer myself, it's my goal to add to the magic of the wonderful words and stories I discovered back then.'

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

I was raised with books - my grandfather ran a mobile library in Birmingham and my parents inherited a random selection of the books. They weren't much interested in them; the books were piled up in a box room, gathering dust. I would disappear in there and resurrect much used classics - Zane Gray 'Riders of the Purple Sage', H G Wells 'The Invisible Man', Charles Dickens 'A Tale of Two Cities' and more obscure stuff that I don't now recall. I was hooked.

There was gap, a long gap, until I was lucky enough to find an inspirational school teacher. He donated his own books to make a lending library in a stock cupboard off the classroom. Kids queued to borrow the books. Except these were the classics - Franz Kafka 'Metamorphosis' and 'The Trial', George Orwell '1984' and 'Animal Farm', Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn 'One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich', Ray Bradbury 'Fahrenheit 451', Boris Pasternak 'Dr Zhivago', Arthur Koestler 'Darkness At Noon', Vladimir Nabokov 'Pale Fire', Ken Kesey 'One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest', Aldous Huxley 'Brave New World'.............

I've been an avid reader ever since.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Take No More 12 février 2012
Par C. Kirby
Format:Format Kindle
Take No More is a well crafted thriller by Seb Kirby. You feel you are right there trying to make sense of the situation with Jim Blake, the main character. He's shocked by the murder of his wife yet having to deal with being suspected of being the perpetrator. The intricacies of the plot twists, the vibrancy of setting and the intriguing characters keep you going all the way to the last word. It's a compelling, clever tale and not to be missed. I enjoyed it it immensely.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Thriller 31 janvier 2012
Format:Format Kindle
Having a brief conversation with the lovely Ignite about the book, I agreed with her on the fact that this book would make an amazing movie. So that's how I'll review it. This book has all the ingredients that you would expect in a fast-paced Thriller, with suspense, action, and a plot that skilfully brings together people who wouldn't have had anything to do with each other otherwise, through some really interesting twists. You want those things in a good movie. Here, you have them in a book.
As a reader, I got sucked in right from the beginning. It was a pleasure to read, and was for me one of those books that were hard to put down. A fantastic read, highly recommended !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Book 4 novembre 2011
Format:Format Kindle
No, my math isn't fuzzy. Combine a great 4 star story full of exotic locations (that the author obviously knows intimately), fabulously drawn characters and an excellent and inventive plot, add an extra star for Seb Kirby's style and that gives you ten on the readability scale. The book veers from first to third person expertly but, for this reader, the first person tone was most enthralling. It was a few pages before I realized what I was reading: a sort of modern noir. I walked in the hero's shoes, was privy to his thoughts and intruded on his emotions as he was drawn into the mystery of his wife's death. Kirby's spare yet rich prose, his perfect word choices, made this a work that appeared to be effortlessly constructed. That seamlessness is the hallmark of a gifted writer. Definitely recommended.

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
C'est le livre de débuts pour Seb Kirby De Londres à Venise et Florence. Mystère, de suspense et de danger de la pègre. L'auteur se déplace rapidement entre les personnages, ce qui donne une vue d'ensemble des évènements, anciens et actuels. Il parvient toujours à vous garder dans l'image. Quelques livres ont tendance à conduire dans tant de directions jusqu'à ce que vous perdiez l'intrigue mais pas ce livre. Tous les personnages sont bien écrits

This is the debut book for Seb Kirby .London to Venice and Florence. Mystery, suspense and danger from the underworld. The author moves quickly between the characters, which gives an overview of events, past and present. He always manages to keep you in the picture. Some books have a tendency to drive in too many directions until you lose the plot but not this book. All the characters are well written

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Italian Mystery Adventure 12 décembre 2011
Format:Format Kindle
I really enjoyed my recent read of `Take no More'.

I enjoyed the setting in Italy and I liked the way you linked your story around the murder mystery and the main topic, which was the hunt for missing paintings, and the main protagonist looking for his lost love.

`Take no More' is a very good read, well plotted and together with the twists and turns, and some horrible ruthless criminals me enthralled from beginning to end.

Well done and good luck with this.
Faith

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fans of Harlan Coben will love this! 9 octobre 2011
Format:Format Kindle
Wow! This is action-packed from page one, and the reader is instantly thurst into murder, suspense, and intrigue.

James is just a normal guy who thinks he has a normal life. Until the murder of his wife. He's forced on a journey from the UK to Italy to find her killers, and finds himself in the midst of a powerful Italian family, the hunt for precious works of art, and danger at every turn.

The writing gives you the feel of actually being in Italy - you can taste and smell it. The plot is action-packed and a real page-turner.

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great crime thriller! And fans of Harlan Coben and Simon Kernick will love it!
