Thieftaker Chronicles, Book 1
D. B. Jackson
"Boston, 1765: The British Crown imposes onerous taxes on the thirteen colonies, and intrigue swirls around firebrands like Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty. For Ethan Kaille, a conjurer who makes a living tracking down thieves, politics is for others, until he is asked to recover a necklace worn by the murdered daughter of a prominent family."
From Michelle's post: Across the board, from hero to foil, Jackson’s characters are certainly interesting and engaging. Based on their personalities, similar world view and how they react in dangerous situations, Ethan is Harry Dresden in a waistcoat and stockings. (Dresden Files fans, if you don't mind a strong dose of history with your spellcasting give Thieftaker a try.)

My oldest son, Bobby is standing on top of a Volkswagen Beetle that we carved out of the pile of snow in front of our house. We owned a real one at the time and used it as our model. Contributed by Fran Hegarty, Head of Technical Services
