Présentation de l'éditeur
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)
'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.'

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
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 !
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!
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.

Roman policier moyen; la partie se déroulant à Londres est meilleure que celle de Florence. Intrigue quelque peu invraisemblable. Plaisant, sans plus. Lire la suitePublié le 2 janvier 2013 par liber
A not very interesting story though happening in Italy. I already forgot most of it and do not think I'll re read it again.Publié le 2 décembre 2012 par Nicole Goldmann
