Eamonn never wanted to be a thief.
So when a risky mission goes awry and he receives the chance of a lifetime, he leaves behind everything, even his newfound family in the Thieves’ Guild, to pursue an apprenticeship as an honest merchant.
Traveling the country means he sees and hears everything. Civil unrest, rebellions against the monarchies, and rumors of a usurper bent on uniting the provinces under himself with a mythical form of magic. Few suspect he’s not chasing a dead end, including village girl Leyna, a believer in the magic of ancient histories. Eamonn’s skeptical heart is also swayed once he finds himself the tyrant’s target, unknowingly possessing the key to harness the dangerous power.
To protect it, Eamonn’s only choice is to flee. But now that it’s the mission of his former brothers in the Guild to hunt him down, keeping magic out of their hands might be harder than either Leyna or Eamonn thought possible. If they fall, though, their world does too.

The sound of the hooves continued to approach them; the river must have been the rider’s goal. As they heard the horse reach the rear of the cellar entrance, Hadli pointed at the ground and mouthed down. He and Eamonn dropped, flattening themselves against the stone path and keeping their bodies pressed against the unlocked doors. Eamonn rolled his lips together and tried to control his trembling hands.

A horse trotted down the road, passing the cellar entrance and coming to a halt where the road met the main dock. An uncomfortably small distance separated Eamonn and Hadli from the horse and rider—they could hear the horse huff and snort, catching its breath. The horse’s rider sat tall and alert atop it, the soft moonlight reflecting off his rounded metal helmet. A night sentry.

In all the time Eamonn had been thieving, he had never run into a night sentry, a soldier in the City Guard who patrolled the city overnight. Occasionally, he’d heard their horses’ hooves in the distance, but he always managed to finish the job and get out in enough time to miss them. Their presence had almost kept Eamonn from starting his life of thievery, because he knew their purpose was to catch criminals like him. He soon learned, though, that being small and quiet gave him an advantage; the sentries only caught thieves less skilled than himself.

Until now.

The Eye of Nineveh

A Travers and Redmond Archaeological Thriller

(The Acquirers Book 1)

by D. G. Palmer

Dodging terrorists, police and opportunistic drug dealers, can Natasha Travers and Lucas Redmond find the Eye of Nineveh to save Natasha’s parents and prove Lucas’ innocence? All without letting the gem fall into the wrong hands.

The Eye of Nineveh. A precious gem with a sliver of Chintamani Stone within it. A power delivered from the gods said to grant invincibility to whomever possessed it. A mysterious gem reputed to be behind the rise and fall of the mighty Assyrian empire but was then lost to history.

Until it unexpectedly resurfaced.

Six years ago, upstart archaeologist, Natasha Travers and her fiancé, SAS soldier Lucas Redmond, found the gemstone, the day their excavation was attacked by The Baron and his terrorist group, known only as “J”. Now, in the present day, the married couple are contacted again. The gem has disappeared from its display in the British Museum. According to the CCTV, the last person to see it was Lucas, making him the number one suspect by the no-nonsense police detective put in charge of the case and the tenacious insurance investigator.

Meanwhile, Natasha, now renowned in her field, finds a cryptic message from her old Cambridge University professor, telling her not to get involved with the missing artefact. But she is forced to, when The Baron and his terrorist group reappears and forces her to find the Eye of Nineveh in 24hrs or watch him kill her parents. Then a name from Lucas’ past re-emerges and threatens to cost them everything.

The Eye of Nineveh is an archaeological thriller, a high-octane race against time across the historic City of London.
